On July 11th, 1991, a total eclipse was visible from Hawaii, Mexico, Central America, and South America. More than 30,000 people traveled from the United States alone to witness this event. To mark this occasion, the University of Hawaii Press published Mark Littmann and Ken Wilcox's firstedition of Totality: Eclipses of the Sun, a unique treatment of these phenomena that served as an invaluable resource for eclipse watchers. Now Oxford University Press is pleased to be publishing a new edition of Totality that has been updated to include current information on the August 1999 eclipse over parts of Europe, Turkey, and Africa, as well as information on other major eclipses of the forthcoming decade. Including the basicsof how and where to view an eclipse--and how to view it safely--this book also presents the history, mythology, solar science, and astrodynamics of eclipses. This new edition also adds Fred Espenak, noted eclipse photographer and astrophysicist at NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center, to the team ofauthors and integrates many of his stunning color photographs into this unparalleled exploration of eclipses. An indispensable resource for anyone who plans to observe an eclipse, and a fascinating read for anyone with an interest in astronomy, Totality will be the only reference you need to take you through next year's eclipse and beyond.
