July 11th 2010 Total Solar eclipse at 19 degrees Cancer 19-33 GMT Visible from South America [Total: South Pacific, Easter Is., Chile, Argentina].
The Wall Street Journal yesterday had a wonderful map tracking the paths of all the upcoming solar eclipses in the next 20 years. Unfortunately, they won't let me access it online without logging in, which probably means that if I try posting a link to it here, it won't be accessible for others, either.
The map only shows total eclipses, deyana. The next one in Montana is Aug. 21, 2017. (I'd mark my calendar except it doesn't go out 7 years!)
You'll get one in Eastern Canada that also crosses Mexico and Texas on April 8, 2024. Northern Alaskans and Bering Islanders will see one March 30, 2023. That does it for North America for the forseeable future.
Northern Australians will get one November 13, 2012, Icelanders will see one March 20, 2015, and Indonesians on March 9, 2016. The northern parts of both Chile and Argentina will be darkened by an eclipse on July 2, 2019.
August 12, 2026, one will cross Greenland and Spain and another crosses North Africa on August 2, 2027. (Egyptians will see that one as well as another on March 20, 2034.) South Africa's next total eclipse is Nov. 25, 2030 and the path of that one will also cross Australia, which will also have an eclipse on July 22, 2028. China gets eclipsed on September 2, 2035.
Except for the 2026 Spanish eclipse, Europeans are out of luck, unless they want to pay big bucks to join an eclipse tour elsewhere.
Some photos convey information regardless of their beauty or lack thereof.
For awhile, this thread was relocated to the Science board by the administrators, so the images apparently weren't the point.
I agree that they aren't often as stunning as clouds or flowers. Perhaps you should start a NEW thread called Moon and Stars - Calendar Quality Images. Or let those who like to play on this thread play here.
BTW, I meant to post all the eclipse references on the Skywatch thread, so will repost them there.
Good idea. Yes, I know that it is not the actual quality of some of the photos that counts, and many are very worthwhile even when they are not perfect. I was just hoping that somebody else would admit that some of the photos are crappy. Apparently not.
Well, I admit my photos are mostly not very good. Most of the ones on here were taken by my old camera and one or two with my new camera. It's so, so hard to get a good picture of the moon though. I'm in awe at some of the other posters photos of the moon on here though, some are amazing.
