Welcome aboard Vagelis (if you had an 'n' in there, you could have been famous... ;)). Say, if you're going to Novosibirsk, mind letting a few of us tag along next August? :D We are trying to do our best as a group (IFAS) to get a troupe over for the sclipse. Here's hoping.

Hi everybody,

I am from Athens, Greece, 39 ys. old. I am an amateur astronomer, mostly hunting asteroid occultations. Last August I was involved in a successfull observation of an uranian satellite occ. event. My club in Greece is EAE www.astronomia.org.gr/ (sory, only greek lang!).

Why sign-in here? Well, I have visited Ireland 5 ys ago and I loved the country and the people! But a more realistic reason is that I would like to hear and exchange some info and ideas about the eclipse of August 1. We are many amateurs here that try to find a good/better/best scenario for the Novosibirsk expedition!

My greetings to all!

Small world ... the internet has NO borders.

Geia soy Vaggeli! :lol:

Seanie,

A local amateur checked around for pricing and it seems our friends in Russia will not commit to any pricing when it comes to accomodation. I suspect they are looking to gauge with a last-minute announcement.

Any news from your side in relation to a mass excursion?

Not wanting to deviate too much from the theme of the thread, but we won't know till around Christmas or thereafter. One of our gang is working through some channels via a Scottish contact who has direct links in Novosibirsk. Fingers crossed.

Hi Frank, Hi Seanie, Hi Anthony,

Thanx for the welcome!
Making plans for Novosibirsk is like fever. Here we are a group with very strong bonds between us- Anthony can testify. We go observing very often, thanks to the mild climate and clear skies in Greece.
It would be wonderfull to meet each other in Novosibirsk, or even go together.
Anyway, I think what's of top priority here is to book the air tickets. We will find accomodation one way or another, Novosibirsk is a big city.

PS: I can play the accordeon, hope never dies!
