About this book

Understanding Eclipses will help readers plan their viewing in advance. The author explains in simple terms and with the help of diagrams and charts, just how galactic coincidence brings about an eclipse. For both upcoming events, he maps the best vantage points along the path of total eclipse, as well as giving percentages of coverage that will be seen from other regions; and he discusses the impact of likely weather conditions. Most importantly, he describes how to observe the eclipses safely. A critical issue, as incorrect observation can have disastrous results. He also gives detailed instructions on how to photograph these momentous events.
