Annular Eclipse of 10 June 2002

... in which we go in search of yet another celestial alignment.

1. A discussion of the weather along the path

2. Maps
            A map of global mean cloud cover for June (in the daytime)
            Indonesia: Sulawesi, where the track begins
            Indonesia: two interesting islands along the way
            Northern Marianas: Tinian and Saipan
            Mexico: near Puerto Vallarta where sunset ends the show

3 Tables of a few weather statistics along the route.

The above material is not intended for publication anywhere and is made available for use within the eclipse-chasing community. Suggestions for improving the content or additional information that you might want can be forwarded to me. I have no objections to the reproduction of this material, but idle curiousity makes me ask that you let me know about it.

Better quality maps can be made up, though the ones here are relatively high in resolution (and size). If you would like them for publication or a similar purpose, let me know and I'll see what I can do.
