Eclipse Predictions


On Tuesday, 1995 October 24, a total eclipse of the Sun will be visible from much of the eastern hemisphere. The path of the Moon's umbral shadow begins in the Middle East, and sweeps across India, Southeast Asia, and South China Sea where it briefly engulfs the northern tip of Borneo before swinging eastward between the Philippines and New Guinea. The path ends at sunset in the Pacific Ocean south of the Marshall Islands. A partial eclipse will be seen within the much broader path of the Moon's penumbral shadow, which includes most of Asia, the Indonesian archipelago and Australia (Figures 1 and 2).
