The map below shows the distribution of 1568 locations used in the calculation of local circumstances for solar eclipses. This is not an exhaustive list. However, every attempt has been made to provide reasonable global coverage as well as including the major cities of the world.

Gazetteer locations

You can view both past and future solar eclipses in the period 1501 CE to 2100 CE for a given location in the gazetteer. The entries are highlighted with a green background in country order in the menu to the left. Please select a location and a table will be provided which includes all the solar eclipses where more than half of each eclipse is visible from the chosen location. A full list of eclipses will be provided in due course.
