We chase these eclipses. We are Eclipse Chasers. We explore and survey future eclipse sites and trek nearby hiking trails across the back country of our nation, and sometimes around the world. In between eclipses, we are still trekkers and astronomers, just closer to home, seeking out Old Classic hikes that have fallen through the cracks, Theme hikes, Target hikes, Easy hikes for newcomers, an Eclectic mix of hiking gaps to be sure, and then those Moderate hikes that have become Endurance hikes, not because they took on lots of peaks, or because they went fast, but just because they shared the whole day with walk and talk, just enough to justify more shared time at a meal afterwards (& sometimes during as well).

We also chase other astronomical phenomena, sometimes together, at strange hours, sometimes in strange new places, and sometimes in the comfort of your own back yard, as Couch Potatoes. Included in the past have been full moon treks, meteor showers, comets, conjunctions, planet transits, occultations, asteroid fly-bys, satellite and space station passes overhead ~ and we have even chased a space ship traversing the streets of Los Angeles. 

We're 33 Star Trekkers
