"This is an attractive and an attractively priced thoroughly readable book, and will be enjoyed by all eclipse chasers" -- Professor Wayne Orchiston * Journal of Astronomical History and Heritage 26(1) *
"There will be five total eclipses over Australia between 2023 and 2035, and this book will enable you to discuss, observe, understand, and worry about them." * Cosmos *
"This fascinating book takes us behind the scenes for the solar eclipse observations by professionals, amateurs, and tourists in Australia for the last 100 years or so. It also prepares the reader for the forthcoming total eclipses visible from Australia, starting with 2023 and 2028. It explains the eclipse observations to be made and why. It even has a couple of pages of recommended activities for teachers to arrange. Everybody in Australia and those world citizens interested in solar eclipses should have a copy." -- Jay Pasachoff * Chair, International Astronomical Union Working Group on Eclipses; Field Memorial Professor of Astro *
"Eclipse Chasers is an intriguing book about eclipses providing great insight to what an eclipse is as well as tips on how to become an eclipse chaser. What this book does is remind the read that there is much more to what's happening in the skies above, it's asking you to be aware of your surroundings, the stillness, the darkness, and the chance to see 'the diamond ring' in the sky." -- Deanne Fitzgerald * Western Australian Museum *
