"Eclipse Predictions by Fred Espenak, NASA/GSFC"
Column Heading Definition/Description 1 Date Calendar Date (Gregorian) at instant of Greatest Eclipse. (Julian calendar is used before 1582 Oct 15). 2 Greatest Time (UT) of Greatest Eclipse, the instant Eclipse when the axis of the Moon's shadow passes closest to Earth's center. 3 Type Type of eclipse where: P = Partial Eclipse. A = Annular Eclipse. T = Total Eclipse. H = Hybrid or Annular/Total Eclipse. If the Type ends with: "m" = Middle eclipse of Saros series. "n" = No northern limit. "s" = No southern limit. "+" = No northern limit and no center line. "-" = No southern limit and no center line. "b" = Saros series begins (first eclipse in series). "e" = Saros series ends (last eclipse in series). 4 Saros Saros series of eclipse. (Each eclipse in a Saros is separated by an interval of 18 years 11.3 days.) 5 Gamma Distance of the shadow cone axis from the center of Earth (units of equatorial radii) at the instant of greatest eclipse. 6 Eclipse Eclipse magnitude is the fraction of the Sun's Mag. diameter obscured by the Moon. 7 Lat. Latitude where greatest eclipse is seen. 8 Long. Longitude where greatest eclipse is seen. 9 Sun Alt Sun altitude at greatest eclipse. 10 Path Width of the path of totality or annularity Width at greatest eclipse (kilometers). 11 Center Central duration of total or annular phase Dur. at greatest eclipse.
