For Astronomy & Eclipse Enthusiasts

Visit our Web site: SolarEclipseTrips.com
Our trips for eclipse and astronomy enthusiasts are designed to travel to prime viewing areas that provide the best opportunities to meet scientists and to view the aurora borealis, meteor showers, or eclipses with clear skies. We invite guest experts to provide you with detailed information, handouts, briefings, and solar glasses (when recommended). You will also see and enjoy the surrounding cultures, archaeological or historical wonders, natural history, and scenic landscapes of the area with like-minded individuals who enjoy seeing the aurora, meteor showers, or eclipses as much as you do!
