A list of solar and lunar eclipses, a summary of their characteristics, and links to more detailed pages

Apr 4, 2015: Total lunar eclipse. Length of totality 4 minutes 43 seconds (the shortest total lunar eclipses of the century). More information to be posted ASAP (this is the one I posted a picture of on the page about Lunar Eclipses). NASA link.

Sep 27/28, 2015: Total lunar eclipse. Entirely visible in western Europe and Africa, South America, and eastern North America. Partially visible in eastern Europe and Africa, the Middle East and western Asia near moonset (just before dawn on the 28th). Partially visible in western North America near moonrise (just after sunset on the 27th). Length of totality about 2 hours, centered around 3:23 am UT Sep 28 = 11:23 pm EDT Sep 27 = 8:23 pm PDT Sep 27. Moon close to perigee, so apparently larger than normal, reducing the length of totality. Detailed discussion on this website. NASA link.

Mar 20, 2016: Total solar eclipse. Totality visible in the North Atlantic and Arctic Ocean, between northern Europe and Iceland. Greatest duration of totality 2 minutes 46 seconds, southeast of Iceland. Partial phases visible in Greenland, Iceland, northern Europe, Asia, Middle East and Africa, and northeastern South America. More information to be posted ASAP. NASA link.

Aug 21, 2017: Total solar eclipse. Totality visible in the United States, the eastern Pacific and the western Atlantic. Greatest duration of totality 2 minutes 40 seconds. The most significant total solar eclipse in the United States in decades. More information to be posted later, but for an exhaustive discussion see this NASA link.
