This book focuses (in its 5th edition) on the eclipses of 2017, especially the solar eclipse that will cross America from Oregon to South Carolina on August 21; but it is about all eclipses. It methodically explains why eclipses of the sun and moon happen, their intricate patterns in time and space - and why they are so exciting. There are page-spreads, with dynamic globe diagrams, for examples of the main kinds of eclipse and several curious cases such as a broken-ring eclipse , a geometrically tight eclipse , a globe-skimming eclipse . Rich illustrations, including the 12-page bead curtain chart of all eclipses from 1901 to 2116; Eclipse stories (with some cartoons); eclipses of the future; tables; index.
