Eclipse City, indeed

Ogle Earth’s newsfeeds dredged up a gorgeous widget this morning, both for OS X and for Yahoo’s widget engine: Xavier M. Jubier’s solar eclipse circumstances calculator, with data for solar eclipses from 1970 to 2039.


The reason it’s mentioned here is that the widget links each each eclipse to a fully annotated Google Earth network link. You don’t need the widgets to access the Google Earth files, though. You can head on over to a page on Xavier’s site where each eclipse is directly accessible as a KMZ file. He’s also got a very good cloud cover network link at the bottom of that page.

Both widgets are downloadable from here.
