Reviews

β˜… "Stellar science teamwork in an unusual spotlight." --Kirkus, STARRED review

"The awe and wonder of scientific research shine. An excellent addition to the 'Scientists in the Field' series." --School Library Journal

"Loomis's descriptions of this complex science are accompanied by special supplemental sections that make the book even more accessible...[Cowan's] pictures vividly capture mood and emotion, adding a truly human element to the adventure: the event is more than data in a textbook, it's hopes and dreams built on a few precious minutes....Budding astronomers should find much to enjoy in these pages and the Eclipse Chaser herself is likely to spark a light of interest in others as well."--Shelf Awareness

"This latest entry in the much-honored Scientists in the Field series invites readers to follow solar physicist Shadia Habbal and her team of observers studying the sun's coronal atmosphere during solar eclipses.... Loomis describes the team's labors in a suspenseful." --Booklist
