Amateur Astronomer Chasers

Chapter

Abstract

This first chapter of our interviews involves two people with a background in amateur astronomy. Firstly, we have Sir Patrick Moore. Sir Patrick is an internationally renowned author, broadcaster, amateur astronomer, and eclipse chaser living in England. He has been presenter of the longest continuously running TV show in history—The Sky at Night with the BBC, since 1957. I approached Sir Patrick for interview since he describes himself as an eclipse chaser, having seen seven total eclipses over a period of fifty years.
