Sky and Telescope - Observing - Celestial Objects - Eclipses
Here you'll find information about some recent and upcoming eclipses of the Sun and Moon. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon lies between the Sun and Earth, casting its shadow on our planet. This can only happen at new Moon. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth lies between the Sun and Moon, so that Earth's shadow darkens the Moon. This can only happen at full Moon.
Solar Eclipse Paths: 1991-2030
NASA eclipse bulletins are provided as a public service and contain detailed predictions, maps, and meteorological data for future central solar eclipses of interest. These resources are provided by the Solar Data Analysis Center.
