Fun for Friday: Cool Historical Eclipse Information!

If you’ve ever found yourself wanting to know when during history there were eclipses in a specific location, I’ve got you covered!

The HMNAO Eclipse Portal will let you choose a location and see a list of all the eclipses in that location from 1500-2100 AD (or CE).

The Solar Eclipse Catalog approaches the topic from the opposite direction, where you can choose a date range and then see the eclipses during that time period. It also covers years as far back as 2000 BC.

So if you’re looking for a fun historical (whether distant or recent) time period in which you could set a story, and you need an eclipse, these sites will help you out!
