I want to thank Voyto Rusin, Pavel Kotrc, and Eva Markova for organizing
this excellent workshop in preparation for the 11 August 1999 total solar
eclipse. There is less than a year before a notable eclipse will bisect Europe
- a fitting last eclipse for this millenium because (the first scientific
eclipse expeditions were organized by Europeans) during the middle of the 19th
Century. To me the great themes of this eclipse underline are: (1) the science
(as always); and (2) the unprecedented opportunity for public education. As we
close this pre-eclipse workshop, I would like to remind everyone of the
post-eclipse workshop that is being organized by Atila Ozguc to be held in
Istanbul from August 13-15. It will be an opportunity to review `lessons
learned' while they are still fresh in mind, and in the spirit of eclipse
observers, to begin thinking about the first eclipse of the new millenium.
