A group of nine members of the Toronto Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada drove to New York in three cars in June 1973 for a journey on the "Canberra" for a two week cruise to view the total solar eclipse of 1973-06-30 off the coast of Africa. This was the second organised eclipse of the Toronto Centre (the first was to Bonaventure, Quebec the year before). Of the nine who travelled together, six were able to make the 30th anniversary reunion at Ralph Chou's home on July 12. Those who made the reunion were Ugo Bartole, Ralph Chou, Jim Cobban, Cathy Hall, Jim Low, and Penny McCabe. Those unable to make it were Nick Fraser, Jim MacKenzie, and John Morriss.
The first photograph here was taken by Lucy Chou, with Ralph Chou's camera. The remaining photographs are by Jim Low.
