Item#: 009439


In stock


The United States is in for its second total eclipse in just seven years, again throwing a wide swath of the country into darkness for up to four minutes in the middle of the day. Be sure you’re ready to get the most out of this moving experience on April 8, 2024 eclipse with expert guidance from former Astronomy editor Michael Bakich.

In Your Guide to the 2024 Solar Eclipse, you’ll learn:

  • What is an eclipse, and why this one is special
  • Where to go to get the best view of the eclipse
  • How to use weather and climate forecasts to give you the best chance to experience a 360° sunset, and other phenomena
  • What you need to view the eclipse safely
  • The best types of cameras, binoculars, and telescopes to record and enhance your viewing experience
  • What you’ll need to make eclipse day a success
  • Simple do-it-yourself projects that will make eclipse day more fun and meaningful

Written in easy-to-understand language (and with a glossary for those few terms you may not be familiar with), this is the must-have reference for this unique occurrence. It’s not a stretch to say that this eclipse will prove to be the most viewed sky event in history. That’s why even now, astronomy clubs, government agencies, cities ― even whole states ― are preparing for the unprecedented onslaught of visitors whose only desire is to experience darkness at midday. Bakich informs observers what anyone will need to observe, enjoy, and understand this event.
