National Eclipse Committee of Venezuela
Dr. Francisco Fuenmayor is the National Eclipse Committee Coordinator
of Venezuela. He informs us that the University del Zulia will
set up a special observing camp in Maracaibo for professionals
interested in installing scientific equipment. He emphasizes that
the facilities of the campground will only be available to those
involved in a scientific experiment and supported by a recognized
institution. If you plan to observe the eclipse from some other
part in Venezuela, please contact Dr. Fuenmayor. He can give advice
on any other observing site you may have selected. Scientists
interested in using the special campground should fill out the
following questionnaire and return it to
