Predictions Info


Welcome to - a website dedicated to predictions and information on eclipses of the Sun and Moon. Although I've been responsible for the NASA Eclipse Website for many years, this new website based on the recent publications Thousand Year Canon of Solar Eclipses 1501 to 2500 and the Thousand Year Canon of Lunar Eclipses 1501 to 2500. features a graphical interface offering a more intuitive way of accessing eclipse predictions. For example, the figures below present a concise preview of all upcoming solar and lunar eclipses over the next seven years. Each of the small eclipse figures links to a page about that particular eclipse. Visit the Key to Solar Eclipse Figures and the Key to Lunar Eclipse Figures for a detailed explanation of these figures.

If you are interested in eclipses of the Sun, go directly to the Solar Eclipses main page. Similarly, you can find details about eclipses of the Moon on the Lunar Eclipses main page. Each of these pages offers thumbnail previews of upcoming eclipses that link to pages with more information for each eclipse. You'll also find many more links at the bottom of these two key pages.

At the top and bottom of every page on EclipseWise, you'll find handy links for:
