In this lecture, Peter Burns explores the 2018 July and August eclipses as well as the eclipses of January 2019. First of all, Peter revisits the 2017 eclipses discussed during his August 2017 VAA lecture, in particular, the famous “Great American Eclipse” on August 21 at 29 Leo.
The partial solar eclipse on 13 July 2018 was at 20⁰ 41’ Cancer, conjunct the fixed star Castor. It was followed by a total lunar eclipse on July 28 at 4⁰ 44’ Aquarius, and another partial solar eclipse two weeks later, on August 11, this time at 18⁰ 41’ Leo. Peter enlightens us with his take on them all.
