Eclipse chasing is about travel.

It’s about the sights you’ll see before and after your two minutes in the shadow. A TSE brings you to places you never thought you wanted to go. Bolivia ranked about number 6,012 on my travel destination bucket list, but it turned out to be one of the most awesome af vacations of my life. It was solely because of the eclipse that I ventured there.

I’m not an astronomer, not even close. (I can locate the Big Dipper in the night sky, and…that’s it.) This site skims some pop science but mostly focuses on the travel opportunities of an eclipse adventure, and the people and places you might share the experience with when you travel to a TSE.

First, you’ll need to scan some books. Try this very old and excellent primer by Bryan Brewer (and Phil Harrington’s “Eclipse!”)

Observation tools: all you need.
