5.0 out of 5 stars Accessible for us dummies, and fun for all., 15 Feb 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Eclipse! The What, Where, When, Why & How Guide to Watching Solar & Lunar Eclipses (Paperback)
A be-youtifully done mini-course in how eclipses happen and how the layman can enjoy observing them. I have a low tolerance for statistics, yet the details of this book are all simply stated and thoroughly illustrated. It doesn't take a lot of precision equipment to prepare for a safe viewing, and if you're prepared, you can gather your friends and say "Wow!" along with the very enthusiastic author, who warns that people have gotten hooked on eclipse-watching and -recording. The tone is just right: the first chapter answered all the questions I was ashamed to ask, without oversimplifying. Outlines are given for specific upcoming eclipses, starting with February 1998.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Aug '99 eclipse is around the corner,THIS BOOK IS A MUST, 12 May 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Eclipse! The What, Where, When, Why & How Guide to Watching Solar & Lunar Eclipses (Paperback)
I have been planning my trip to view the August 1999 total solar eclipse for a few years now. It's almost here!! Thanks to this book, the best about eclipses by far, I am ready! Chapters detail traveling to other countries, what to bring, how to photograph eclipses, and even information about *every* eclipse between now and 2017. It even gives details about expected climatological conditions!
This book is more than solar eclipses, however. It also gives me new appreciation for lunar eclipses as well. There is a beauty coming up in January 2000 that will be visible right from my backyard. I'm now ready for that one, too!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Complete guide to nature's most spectacular show, 28 July 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Eclipse! The What, Where, When, Why & How Guide to Watching Solar & Lunar Eclipses (Paperback)
Total solar eclipses are mother nature's rarest and best trick: for a few precious moments, a blackness replaces the sun.
This book answers the what-where-why, as well as capturing the awe of total solar eclipses, and also covers the related phenomenon of lunar and partial solar eclipses.
The book has the technical integrity to not "talk down" to the audience while still being interesting to the non-scientist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written, fascinating - I'm hooked, 22 May 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Eclipse! The What, Where, When, Why & How Guide to Watching Solar & Lunar Eclipses (Paperback)
I picked this book up in the library but it's one I will own. In one chapter all my questions about how eclipses work were answered and much more. Harrington has helped me discover the wonder and uniqueness of each upcoming eclipse, even if I won't always be on the right continent to observe them myself. An excellent guide book for everyone from the simply curious to the avid eclipse chaser.
