Explore the Land of Fire & Ice and See
the Total Solar Eclipse, March 20, 2015!
ICELAND Eclipse & Aurora Borealis
March 15-23, 2015
We invite you to join us in Iceland to see the Total Solar Eclipse over the North Atlantic and enjoy splendid nights observing the Aurora Borealis!
This trip includes both wonderful astronomical
phenomena in one location and is a rare occurrence and real opportunity!
To see the Total Solar Eclipse, we will fly in chartered aircraft from Reykjavik about an hour to the east to the point of maximum Totality! This will be a wonderful adventure, with excellent viewing out the plane’s windows.
We will also discover famous Icelandic sites, including the renowned Geysir (after which all of the world’s geysers are named), plus geothermal wonders, such as the Blue Lagoon and Myvatn in Iceland’s northeast.
There will be special lectures on geology, volcanism, the Aurora Borealis, the Icelandic sagas from the 10th and 11th centuries, and the Total Solar Eclipse. We will also visit a new Japanese research site for study of the Aurora Borealis near Husavik.
You will travel with veteran Betchart and Planetary Society leader Bob Nansen, plus our excellent local naturalist, Siggi Tomasson.
We hope you will join us!
