(to be updated soon for North American April 2024 solar eclipse)
I (MD) have been interested in Astronomy since elementary school, when my older brother and I built several telescopes (and even ground the 6 and 8 inch mirrors!). However, this website section was initially motivated by the need for information by eclipse-travelers 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 – essentially for amateur astronomers. This covers aspects of climatology, light pollution, and logistics of travel. Links to these pages are below.
