Betchart Expedition/TIGHAR IN SEARCH OF AMELIA EARHART Trip to Nikumaroro 2015. A video summary of the experiences of those passengers on the 2015 trip to Nikumaroro by Betchart Expeditions and TIGHAR. TIGHAR is working to confirm the hypothesis that Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan landed on Nikumaroro in 1937 and perished on the island.

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!
