Jay Pasachoff is a Professor of Astronomy at Williams College. He is a veteran of 56 solar eclipse expeditions, which have taken him all over the world to study the sun over the sunspot cycle. He received the Education Prize from the American Astronomical Society. His undergraduate textbooks in astronomy have been widely used. He is already involved in planning for education and public outreach for the 2017 total solar eclipse for which totality will stretch from Oregon to South Carolina and for which the whole of the continental United States and Canada will see at least a partial eclipse.

Stephen Swinburne is the author of many books, including Saving Manatees, a Society of School Librarians International Honor Book, and Wiff and Dirty George: The Z.E.B.R.A. Incident. He lives in South Londonderry, Vermont.
