The 1999 Eclipse: Path World

The 1999 Total Eclipse
The Total Solar Eclipse of 11 August 1999. The red part is the path of totality. The shadow travels from west to east (left to right on the map). At the point of greatest eclipse, totality is at local midday. West of that point the eclipse will be total before local noon; east of it, totality will be seen after local noon. The area on either side of the path of totality will provide a partial eclipse, the magnitude decreasing with distance from the path of totality.
