All times are displayed in local time using the value from the Time Zone field in Section 1 (add 1 hour for Daylight Saving Time). A time followed by "(r)" means the event is already in progress at sunrise. Similarly, a time followed by "(s)" means the event is still in progress at sunset. In such cases, the times and circumstances given are for sunrise or sunset, respectively. The times of sunrise and sunset are calculated when the Sun's lower limb touches the horizon.
For more information about the local circumstances table, see Key to Solar Eclipse Explorer.
A time followed by "(r)" means the event is already in progress at sunrise, while a time followed by "(s)" means the event is still in progress at sunset. In such cases, the times and circumstances given are for sunrise or sunset, respectively.
Negative years are equivalent to the year BC minus 1 year (See: Dating Conventions ).
The Eclipse Explorer presented here features drop-down menus for city coordinates and buttons to select any century from -1499 to 3000 (1500 BCE to 3000 CE). It can be used to explore the frequencey and circumstances of all solar eclipses visible from any location on Earth. The Eclipse Explorer was developed by Chris O'Byrne and Fred Espenak.
