ASTRONOMY

The section is related to various aspects of Astronomy.  This was initially motivated by the need for information prior to the 2017 total solar eclipse over North America.  Later, we became aware of travel planning for the 2019 total solar eclipse in Chile and Argentina and a section was developed for this event.  Finally, recognizing that there is more to astronomical travel than just going to see total eclipses, we developed a section that covers travel to see the night sky.  This covers aspects of climatology, light pollution, and logistics of travel.  Links to these pages are below.
