More Info...

ill titleWelcome !

Since some years ago, I have traveled to some countries in order to see Solar Eclipses. I must say that this has been also a  great chance to get to know places where I never thought in my life I would travel to.

Within my website you will find information about the trips I have made, as well as information regarding the pictures I have taken of eclipses. You will also find some videos I have taken of Solar Eclipses.

 

ill titleAbout me

When I was a kid, my dad showed me his telescope and encouraged me to look through it. Years later, I remember he always purchased a book from a university in Mexico (UNAM) containing information about the major astronomical events to happen during that specific year. I always looked for the eclipses, and I remember my disappointment when I saw that eclipses were happening almost every year, but in many places around the world and not in Mexico. 

In year 1991, I saw the great Total Solar Eclipse in Mexico City, and that was a great experience for me. ill_2

Many years later I decided to travel to see Solar Eclipses. I did a search in the Internet for Solar Eclipse Tours, and bingo! My first trip was to Iceland, and that was just great. Ever since, I try to travel once a year to see one Eclipse. 

Many areas of my web site are still under construction. I will try to update them shortly.

Thanks for visiting!
