This implementation of Google Maps is based on Charlie Ridgway's Occultations Page.
The eclipse contacts window is based on Xavier Jubier's solar eclipses mapping page. Xavier's assistance in updating and improving these maps has been invaluable.
Special thanks to National Space Club summer intern Sumit Dutta for his assistance in developing this web page (July 2007) and to Bill Kramer for adding the distance-to-marker feature.
The Besselian elements used in the eclipse predictions were generated for the Moon's center of mass using the VSOP87/ELP2000-82 ephemerides for the Sun and Moon. The accuracy of the northern and southern edges of the eclipse path are limited to approximately 1-2 kilometers due to the lunar limb profile. All calculations are by Fred Espenak, and he assumes full responsibility for their accuracy.

Each of the following links displays a table containing 20 years of total, annular and hybrid eclipses. Each eclipse offers links to a global map, shadow animation, interactive Google map, path coordinates table, and saros table.

Each link in the following table displays a web page containing 100 years of eclipses. Every eclipse has links of global maps, central paths plotted on Google Maps, Saros series tables, and Besselian elements.
