Abstract

Solar eclipses are known for their beauty and almost twilight feel when witnessed in person. The sun is fully engulfed by the moon, leaving only a ring of what the sun used to be for only a moment. To the average Joe this might seem like an amazing spectacle that they can’t wait to tell their grandchildren. But, there is more to this event than just a huge space rock blocking light from a star. Throughout the history of the planet many scientists and mathematicians have worked to decipher the exact timings for this event in the past and even in the future.
