sun/moon eclipse tag
« on: January 08, 2019, 10:22:31 AM »
Hi My WS is located in Slovenia/Europe. I am add suneclipse and mooneclipse TAG "%mooneclipse%" and "%suneclipse%" on my web page but as I can see this data is calculated for Australia. I have correct input od Lat and Long on WD but calculation is the same for Australia and Oceania. Could somebody tell me which formula is applayed or what can be done that calculation will be made for Europe.
On my webpage is next mooneclipse 23:31 UTC 16 julij 2019 Eclipse Total and sun eclipse 21:23 UTC 2 julij 2019 Eclipse Total This is for Austalia/Oceania area.
Any idea around this ??

Marco

it should be using the lat/long you have set for the sun moon rise/set in WD
what have you set there?

I just checked my moondetail2.gif for Netherlands.

We do have a moon eclips on Juli 16 23:31 but it is not a total eclips, only partially.
The next total eclips is next week on January 21 06:12 (Not mentioned in moondetail2.gif)

We do have a Total Sun Eclipse on July 2 but we are not able to see it.
The next Total Eclipse we can see is on August 12 2026.

the problem is the component I use , for the moon eclipse, lat/long is not used
but I have found another calculation I can use and that does show the 21 jan eclipse for the northern hemisphere
so I can use
I will try that now and let you know

try a new .zip update of WD, ready now

I probably need to use this new routine for solar eclipse too? (as that did not have any location data in the routine I was using)

Hi
OK, yes, I will do the same for the solar eclipse
so the 120% is correct?
as someone emailed me and asked about why is that above 100

I think 120% is OK, just means that the "shadow" is that much bigger than the moon. So 100% would be a very short eclipse cause the shadow would only just cover the moon.

Brian the date is now correct, but the time isn't correct. My Lat/Long are 41.12 N  75.36 W

This is data from USNO:

Moon enters totality   2019 Jan 20  23:40.8       159.8     67.5
Middle of eclipse      2019 Jan 21  00:12.3       178.9     68.6
Moon leaves totality   2019 Jan 21  00:43.8       198.1     67.7

.
Cheers

 :D

From hemel.waarnemen.com for Netherlands and belgium

De verduistering heeft een grootte van 1.20 in de kernschaduw.De eclips begint om 3:36 uur en staat bij het maximum, om 6:13 uur, op een hoogte van circa 21 (in Utrecht).De eclips eindigt om 8:50 uur.Een totale maansverduistering kan erg indrukwekkend zijn. Tijdens de totaliteit, die duurt van 5:41 tot 6:44 uur, bevindt de Maan zich volledig in de kernschaduw van de Aarde en valt er geen direct zonlicht meer op de Maan.

Size of shadow is 1.20
Eclips begins at 3:36 max at 6:13 ends 8:50
Total eclips from 5:41 until 6:44

Thanks for the fix.
Can forward slashes be removed from the date?
