Solar Eclipses: 2011 - 2020

Introduction

A concise summary of all solar eclipses from 2011 through 2020 is presented here in three ways. The first is a series of Global Maps showing the geographic regions of visibility for each eclipse. The second is a World Map showing the path of every central solar eclipse (total, annular, and hybrid). The third is a Table listing the primary characteristics of each solar eclipse. Near the bottom of the page are a series of Links for more on solar eclipses.

Global Maps of Solar Eclipses: 2011 - 2020

The maps below offer a concise summary of all solar eclipses from 2011 through 2020. Each map depicts the geographic region of visibility for a single eclipse. For central eclipses, the total or annular path is plotted in either blue (total) or red (annular). Click on an eclipse map to link to the EclipseWise Prime Page with complete details about that eclipse, including a larger version of the map. Visit Key to Solar Eclipse Maps for a detailed explanation of these maps.

Below each of the global eclipse maps is the hot link Google Eclipse Map. Click on this to take you to a web page showing the eclipse path plotted on an interactive Google Map.

World Map of Central Solar Eclipses: 2011 through 2020

The path of every central solar eclipse (i.e., total, annular, and hybrid) from 2011 through 2020 is plotted on the world map (equidistant cylindrical projection). The central paths of total and annular eclipses are shaded blue and red, respectively. For hybrid eclipses, part of the path is shaded blue (total), and part is shaded red (annular). Major cities are plotted as black dots, scaled by population size.

Table of Solar Eclipses: 2011 through 2020

A concise summary of all solar eclipses from 2011 through 2020 is presented in the table below. The first column gives the Calendar Date of the instant of greatest eclipse. The second column TD of Greatest Eclipse is the Terrestrial Dynamical Time (TD) when the axis of the Moon's shadow passes closest to Earth's center. The third column lists the Eclipse Type which is either Total, Annular, Hybrid or Partial.

Eclipses recur over the Saros cycle, a period of approximately 18 years 11 days. Each eclipse belongs to the Saros Series shown in column 4. The Eclipse Magnitude gives the fraction of the Sun's diameter obscured at the instant of greatest eclipse (column 5). For total and annular eclipses, the Central Duration gives the length of the eclipse as seen from the central line at greatest eclipse (column 6). Finally, the Geographic Region of Eclipse Visibility provides a brief description of where each eclipse will be seen. Countries and regions within the path of total or annular eclipses are listed in italics inside [ ] brackets.

The eclipse date (first column) links to the EclipseWise Prime Page for the eclipse. This page features a map showing the geographic region of eclipse visibility as well as detailed predictions, Besellian elements and links to additional information about the eclipse.

The Key to Solar Eclipse Decade Table contains a more detailed description of each item in the table.

Eclipse Predictions

The eclipse predictions presented here were generated using the JPL DE406 solar and lunar ephemerides. The lunar coordinates have been calculated with respect to the Moon's Center of Mass.
