Introduction


The Hybrid Solar Eclipse of 2067 Dec 06 is visible from the following geographic regions:

  • Partial Eclipse: Americas, Africa, south Europe
  • Hybrid Eclipse: Honduras, Nicaragua, Colombia, Venezuela, Guyana, Brazil, Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad, Sudan

The instant of greatest eclipse takes place on 2067 Dec 06 at 14:03:43 TD (14:02:05 UT1). This is 3.4 days before the Moon reaches perigee. During the eclipse, the Sun is in the constellation Ophiuchus. The synodic month in which the eclipse takes place has a Brown Lunation Number of 1793.

The eclipse belongs to Saros 143 and is number 26 of 72 eclipses in the series. All eclipses in this series occur at the Moon’s ascending node. The Moon moves southward with respect to the node with each succeeding eclipse in the series and gamma decreases.

The solar eclipse of 2067 Dec 06 is one of the rare hybrid solar eclipses. In this particular case the eclipse path starts out as annular. Further down the track it changes to total and then back to annular before the path ends. It is a very short hybrid eclipse with a duration at greatest eclipse of 00m08s. The eclipse magnitude is 1.0011, while Gamma has a value of 0.2845.

The hybrid solar eclipse of 2067 Dec 06 is preceded two weeks earlier by a penumbral lunar eclipse on 2067 Nov 21.

These eclipses all take place during a single eclipse season.

The eclipse predictions are given in both Terrestrial Dynamical Time (TD) and Universal Time (UT1). The parameter ΔT is used to convert between these two times (i.e., UT1 = TD - ΔT). ΔT has a value of 97.8 seconds for this eclipse.

The following links provide maps and data for the eclipse.

At time t1 (decimal hours), each besselian element is evaluated by:

x = x0 + x1*t + x2*t2 + x3*t3 (or x = Σ [xn*tn]; n = 0 to 3)

where: t = t1 - t0 (decimal hours) and t0 = 14.000

Eclipse Predictions

Predictions for the Hybrid Solar Eclipse of 2067 Dec 06 were generated using the JPL DE406 solar and lunar ephemerides. The lunar coordinates were calculated with respect to the Moon's Center of Mass. The predictions are given in both Terrestrial Dynamical Time (TD) and Universal Time (UT1). The parameter ΔT is used to convert between these two times (i.e., UT1 = TD - ΔT). ΔT has a value of 97.8 seconds for this eclipse.
