Join TravelQuest International and Sky & Telescope on an amazing North Pole Flight Through Totality to witness the total eclipse of the Sun on August 1, 2008. In partnership with LTU International Airways and Polarflug Germany, our exclusively chartered aircraft will leave from the easily accessible Köln/Bonn airport in Germany. We’ll intercept the Moon’s shadow over the Arctic Ocean and experience more time in totality than is possible from anywhere on the ground.

ity, we have assembled a technical team that includes Sky & Telescope’s
J. Kelly Beatty and astronomer Dr. Glenn Schneider. The expertise of these veteran eclipse-chasers proved invaluable in planning and executing two highly successful airborne intercepts of the November 2003 total solar eclipse over Antarctica.
To further assure great eclipse viewing for everyone aboard, we are limiting the capacity on our Airbus 330-200 aircraft. Before and after the eclipse, there will be plenty of room to move around and view from both sides of the aircraft, all the while enjoying expert commentary on the eclipse, North Pole geography/history, and the natural wonders below us. Our flight will also include international-class food and beverage service.
Don’t miss this chance to see a total solar eclipse from our “flying observatory” high above the Earth. Capacity is extremely limited, so reserve your seats today!
