Two of our ASNSW members, Melissa Hulbert and Cathi Humphrey-Hood, have organised a tour to the US to see the Total Solar Eclipse on 21st August 2017. Based in Portland, Oregon, the plan is to view the eclipse from either Madras or Salem but it will depend on the weather conditions on the day. Tour dates are 10 - 22 August 2017. Highlights Include:
· Mt Wilson tour and night viewing on the 60-inch and 100-inch telescopes
· Meteor Crater including rim tour
· Lowell Observatory tour
· Kennedy Space Centre
· Smithsonian Museum
Melissa Hulbert will be the guide on the tour. Flights have been finalised for the 2017 Eclipse Tour and final prices ex Sydney are shown in the itinerary. Anyone interested in coming along needs to include a registration form when paying deposit. Both itinerary and registration form can be downloaded from the website.
