This is an experimental, rather rushed implementation of the NASA Eclipse Bulletin for the 10 May 1994 eclipse for Mosaic clients. The intent is to supplement the hardcopy NASA Reference Publication, which is currently out of print. Given the imminence of the eclipse, we thought a rough-around-the-edges Web Bulletin was better than none at all.
Annular Solar Eclipse of 10 May 1994 (NASA RP 1301) contains detailed predictions for this event and include besselian elements, geographic coordinates of the path of totality, physical ephemeris of the umbra, topocentric limb profile corrections, local circumstances for cities, maps of the eclipse path, weather prospects, the lunar limb profile and the sky during totality. Information on safe eclipse viewing and eclipse photography is included.
This is a Web implementation of the NASA 1994 Eclipse Bulletin. The following index allows you to navigate to any part of this document.
NASA Eclipse Bulletins contain detailed predictions, maps and meteorology for future central solar eclipses of interest. These publications are prepared in cooperation with the Working Group on Eclipses of the International Astronomical Union and are provided as a public service to both the professional and lay communities, including educators and the media. In order to allow a reasonable lead time for planning purposes, subsequent bulletins will be published 18 to 24 months before each event.
