Description

Total and Total-annular solar eclipses processed by the program are comprised between 1900 and 2100, exactly 287 eclipses from 28th May 1900 to 4th September 2100 .
The program gives the times in Universal Time of the Solar eclipse phases (initial, central and final) and the geographical coordinates from where it is possible to observe those circumstances of the eclipse. It also gives maximum duration and the width of the lunar umbra.
Below Path of the Umbra are listed Longitude and Latitude of seven point of the lunar umbra path on the Earth surface.
The program has a few functions: Earth Map, Movie and Google Map visualization. The first allows seeing a few points of the path of the lunar umbra on Earth surface; the second creates an animation:  the user will see the eclipse from one hour before up to one hour after its maximum phase with step of 2 minutes; the third function allows to visualize Google Map of the area around the point where the eclipse reaches the maximum or that selected from the user.
Moreover it is possible to change geographical coordinates of the observer. This allows knowing if and how the eclipse will be seen from other points of the Earth surface (e.g. it is possible to know if the eclipse will be partial or it does not occur for those coordinates).

Great app

FransMan05

This is a fantastic app. If you take the time to learn how to use this app, it is loaded with info. Map graphics are really good, especially the solar map showing the eclipse path. As with all astronomy apps having some knowledge of basic astronomy helps. The app works just fine on my iPhone 3G. I showed my astronomy buddies and they will be downloading it soon.

Will be an good tool - when it is finished

I echo the previous comment on unreponsive buttons.

Also as an experienced eclipse chaser (11 so far) what I want to know is the times and alt/az for C1, C2, C3, and C4 for my GPS location (or for a location that I might try). Other info is fine, but without these I would have to look elsewhere

Very interesting application.
You can see the solar eclipes, if it is at least partially visible, from any point of view on the Earth surface,
