Our USA 2012 and Australia 2012 eclipse tours are accompanied by our astronomy expert Andy Green.

He has a degree in Geo-Science / Planetary Geology and is a Fellow of both the British Interplanetary Society and Royal Astronomical Society. Andy is also a freelance space journalist and has had articles published in Spaceflight Magazine and Quest Magazine.
