Message from Sky & Telescope

The AAS staff (including staff of Sky and Telescope) are working remotely from their homes to support the social distancing efforts to contain COVID 19. While we are all working to support the S&T community, there may be delays in responding during this time. If you have a question or concern, please contact Camillia Taylor at shopatsky@aas.org.

This is a difficult time for the entire United States. Aero, our fulfillment partner, is based in Ohio. As you may know, Ohio has closed all non-essential businesses. Aero also provides fulfillment services for P&G and has received an exception from the shut-down. While they will continue to fulfill our orders, there may be a delay in shipping our products because they must give priority to medical, personal healthcare, and cleaning and sanitization products.

Sky & Telescope's Solar Eclipse Globe

SKU# R5153

The Solar Eclipse Globe has arrived! This is the first globe ever constructed that depicts the paths of total solar eclipses — nature’s most spectacular sky sights. Designed and constructed by cartographer (and avid eclipse-chaser) Michael Zeiler of GreatAmericanEclipse.com, this unique 12-inch globe carefully plots the paths of every total solar eclipse from 2001 to 2100. Each eclipse track of these is labeled with a small yellow circle at the point where the duration of totality is longest, along with the eclipse’s date (reckoned in Universal Time) and totality’s maximum duration. Also included are the extremely thin paths of “hybrid” solar eclipses, which can appear total or annular depending on the observer’s location along the path. The globe sits in a freestanding base, so you can pick it up and examine any area closely. As fascinating visually as it is instructive, this unique globe is a "must" for anyone who's witnessed a total solar eclipse or who longs to see one.
