Circumstances at
Greatest Eclipse:   Sun´s Altitude =  69.6°         Path Width =  27.0 km
                     Sun´s Azimuth = 331.9°   Central Duration =  00m42.0s


1 Ephemeris Longitude is the terrestrial dynamical longitude assuming a
                     uniformly rotating Earth.
2 True Longitude is calculated by correcting the Ephemeris Longitude for
                the non-uniform rotation of Earth.
   (T.L. = E.L. + 1.002738*ΔT/240, where ΔT(in seconds) = TDT - UT)

Note: Longitude is measured positive to the East.

Since ΔT is not known in advance, the value used in the predictions is an
extrapolation based on pre-2004 measurements.  Nevertheless, the actual
value is expected to fall within ±0.3 seconds of the estimated ΔT used here.
