Inter-Division C-E WG Solar Eclipses


The web page of the IAU Working Group on Solar Eclipses contains a wide variety of material and links relevant to observing solar eclipses. It is suitable for the general public as well as advanced amateur astronomers and professional astronomers. Maps of the paths of totality and annularity, cloudiness statistics based on past spacecraft observations, information on the safety of eclipse observations, and many other pieces of information are linked. The website should be viewed as a "one-stop shop" for eclipse information.
