2008 August 1st Total Solar Eclipse
Tours from 36 hours to 11 days - Reservations are open !

You can still make a reservation for our China and Russia tours. Special tours are available for scientific experiments and for those wishing to spend a few days at the viewing site.
Please send us an E-mail to know more about the International Symposium that will be organized with the Urumqi Observatory before the eclipse... Learn more

Five Millennium of Solar & Lunar Eclipses Database
February & June 2007 - Going Live

Back in February my web-enabled tool based on Fred Espenak and Jean Meeus Five Millennium Canon of Solar Eclipses (2000 BCE to 3000 CE) was released. Now the same tool is also available for lunar eclipses.
With this new tool you can display in realtime the elements of nearly 12,000 solar eclipses and over 12,000 lunar eclipses, and at the same time create interactive maps or compute the local circumstances... Learn more


Seminar : The NOTTE experiment, or how to become a Total Solar Eclipse Chaser
5 December 2007 - CERN in Geneva, Switzerland

S. Cecchini, INAF/IASF and INFN Sez. Bologna, Italy & Eclipse-City
The NOTTE experiment (Neutrino Oscillations with Telescope during Total Eclipse) aims at searching for visible photons emitted through a possible radiative decay of solar neutrinos. The experiment and the expeditions organized by a group of physicists and astrophysicists from INFN and INAF Bologna hunting for Total Solar Eclipses from 1998 to 2006 wil be described. The results of observations performed during total solar eclipse expeditions in 2001 (Zambia) and 2006 (Sahara desert, Libya) are presented and a beautiful photo gallery will be shown. Other peculiar observations that can be made during a solar eclipse are also illustrated.
The seminar will be followed by a brief presentation of future camps for solar eclipse chasers and scientists organized in 2008, 2009 and 2010.  Learn more
