[small total eclipse image] Annular and Total Solar Eclipses of 2003 [thumbnail of cover art with eclipse paths]

This is a Web implementation of the NASA Eclipse Bulletin for the annular (May 31) and total (November 23) solar eclipses of 2003. The hardcopy NASA Technical Publications are at best in short supply, and in any case the Web is probably the best medium for the dissemination of this information, especially for those people with network access who do not really need hardcopies of every page (though you can use your Web viewer to make hardcopies as needed).

You can start with the table of contents, which now contains lists of figures and tables for each chapter, or just jump into the text at the beginning. Since we generally do not have time to add more than the most simple-minded of hypertext links to the text (e.g. linking consecutive sections of the Bulletin and the sections to the table of contents), we recommend using the table of contents as the most useful entry point.

Other NASA eclipse bulletins currently available on the Web include:

The original hardcopy Bulletin, NASA Technical Publication 2002-211618, was written by Fred Espenak (NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland, USA) and Jay Anderson (Prairie Weather Center, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada).

You can request hardcopies of other Eclipse Bulletins from the authors by using the request form in this Bulletin. Note that you must include a SASE (self-addressed, stamped envelope) with postage for 12 ounces (340 grams) with your request. Do not send cash or checks!
