Solar Eclipses

The interactive maps show the solar eclipses paths across Earth’s surface. The umbral or antumbral northern and southern limits of a solar eclipse are plotted in pink while the central line is blue. The four-way toggle arrows (upper left corner) are used for navigating around the map. The zoom bar (left edge) is used to change the magnification or map scale. The three buttons (top right) turn on either a map view, a satellite view or a hybrid map/satellite view. You can append a query string to each map web page URL in order to alter the default display. The parameters can be specified in any order or can be omitted. It should look something like :
 ?Lat=24.4958333&Lng=17.9600000&Zoom=11&Map=G_HYBRID_MAP (example)

  • Latitude is a number in decimal notation and is positive in the Northern hemisphere,
  • Lng for Longitude is a number in decimal notation and is positive if East of Greenwich,
  • Zoom is a number between 0 and 17 specifying the zoom level (17 is highest),
  • Map is a constant specifying the map type (G_NORMAL_MAP, G_SATELLITE_MAP, G_HYBRID_MAP or G_PHYSICAL_MAP).

Clicking anywhere in the map will show the local circumstances of the eclipse at the location of the click. A "Google Map" help is available too. This animated map shows you how to embed an interactive map into your web site. The Five Millennium Canon of Solar Eclipses Database will give you access to every eclipses over the -1999 to +3000 period.
If you prefer to use Google Earth, available under MacOS X, Windows and Linux, you can download the Google Earth files (kml, kmz) for each eclipses. The best locations to observe prolonged Baily Beads can be established with the help of special Google Maps showing the grazing zones. A Solar Eclipse Calculator Widget is also bound to those maps and files.
