Vulcanoid object characteristics

Miscellaneous Chit-Chat
I would like to point some things out and see if I am on the right track. A Vulcanoid object orbiting the sun should have the following characteristics: 1. Cannot be a captured iron meteor. The sun's magnetic field would cause magnetic braking drag and create an unstable spiral orbit. 2. The Vulcanoid would most likely be similar in composition to a carbonaceous chondrite meteor to exhibit your theoretical light reflection characteristics. The IR / red spectrum emissions would support this theory. 3. Orbital dynamics of the sun-mercury gravitational system would indicate an unstable highly eccentric orbital plane.

Can anyone recommend a good Eclipse tour or Eclipse-aware tour company for the March 29 2006 eclipse?
