Our Astronomers (past and present)

You don’t need to be an astronomer or to have any knowledge of astronomy to enjoy the sight of a solar eclipse. It is an astonishing natural event – one of nature’s best pieces of theatre and you don’t need any equipment to see it. Of course if you do have an interest in astronomy, you will have some understanding of the vast celestial forces which bring about this rare and highly improbable event.

You will always receive detailed eclipse briefing notes when you travel and a safe solar viewer to observe the partial phases and our team will include people with experience of many previous eclipses and an in-depth knowledge of astronomy. We have always been fortunate in having a good contingent of experienced observers from the British Astronomical Association on the projects and the TV astronomer Sir Patrick Moore frequently travelled with us in the early days.

On most of our larger projects (if logistics permit) we have a briefing presentation given by astronomy experts, covering both the eclipse and the night sky visible from the region you are travelling in at that time of year. The astronomers below have featured in quite a number of these presentations over the years.
