Partial solar eclipses in Guide
Robert J. Modic May 26, 2012
I was looking at the local circumstances of the recent solar
eclipse on May 20. I noticed that the eastern limit for the
partial eclipse is drawn farther west by about 400 miles than
it actually was. This seems to be the case for the eastern
and western limits for all eclipses. Of course, toggling
"Show Eclipse" off and zooming in on the Sun allows one to
see the local circumstances of each eclipse with high accuracy.
But this is rather time consuming.
Is there a way to show the full extent of the eclipsed areas
on the global map so one can quickly step through eclipses
to find the partial ones as well as the total ones?
