The Bucket List Astronomy Tour (BLAsT) Class is officially off and running. Led by Sam Houston State University astronomy professors Dr. Scott Miller and Dr. C. Renee James, a frequent contributor to Astronomy magazine, the class is taking 10 undergraduate students with widely varied backgrounds and aspirations to witness some of the best astronomical events of a lifetime (hence the name). Here's what James had to say about the trip so far:
I'm very jealous. Hope you guys have fun. I'll post some pictures later of the eclipse and the transit from whet we see here in Huntsville later.
