Solar Eclipses of 2015

J McCaul, Mar 1, 2015

There are two Solar Eclipses. The first eclipse is total but the second one is partial. There are also two Lunar Eclipses, and both them are Total.

Solar eclipses are less condusive to viewing. A person must be in the right area at the right time and the sky must be clear. Also, special devices must to used to protect vision. Lunar Eclipse is more visibility friendly. If the eclipse occurs in your region, the sky is clear and it is dark, you can see it. No special equipment is necessary.

The map below shows the path of the two solar eclipses this year.

  • Solar - March 20, Saros 120
  • Lunar - April 4, Saros 132
  • Solar - September 13, Saros 125
  • Lunar - September 28, Saros 137

Dates Contradict

J McCaul Dec 22, 2013

We recently received this email (sanitized and with spelling Englishized) asking us to *explain* ourselves. Geez. We do hope that this individual also contacted the other sites to ask the same question.

"Auspicious team of, It is to complain that your web site predicts that Mercury shall enter in Sagittarius on 5th December 2013. However, other web sites predict that Mercury shall enter in Sagittarius on 20th December 2013. There might be some other contradictions as well. I have been visiting your web site regularly, but today I saw other web sites and I was confused. Please tell me where the root of this contradiction lies. For your convenience I am posting some links that contradict's transitions timing."

First things first. Moontracks uses Western based theory, also known as Geocentric Tropical Astrology. The sites that the querent referred us to are Geocentric Sidereal Astrology based. The astrology referred to were Vedic, Hindu, Jyotish, also known as Indian (i.e. from India) based theory.

There are plenty of other forms of astrology just to confuse the point. Chinese and Meso-American forms are just two of the many that don't use Sidereal or Tropical zodiac. Some other forms of astrology that use Tropical are Islamic, Hellenistic, Medieval and Tibetan.

All of the forms described above are geocentric (earth based). Just to add in some more confusion is the Heliocentric forms of astrology which are "Sun" centered.

Nutshell is, that not all astrology sites are alike and some will have different ingress dates based on the type of computations being used. If you have a question about which theory is being used, then ask, politely. Moontracks will continue to utilize Tropical. If our calculations are wrong based on the Tropical Ephemeris, then we will gladly accept the inquiry and fix the error if it is blatant.

Lunar Calendar

The main focus of our astrology calendars is on the Moon; "La Luna." So we have a wide range of lunar calendars pertaining to the Moon's movement through the zodiac, the void of course (VOC) transit, the Moon's phases, and the important dates of New Moon, Full Moon and Eclipse events. The daily activities guide is a useful tool for planning through the month. All information is based on Tropical aka Western Astrology

Planet Calendars

The Moon's transit is not the only important information. We also provide dates concerning planetary ingress, retrograde motion, overall planetary influence charts, and older calendars so that you can always look back in time.

Ephemeris Tables

The day to day information about transits would not be complete without access to an ephemeris. All the ephemeris tables and charts on this site are created using GMT unless indicated otherwise on that page. Many individuals are curious about declination information. Follow the links on the declination page to read more about the purpose of declination charts.

Time Zones Adjustable

Although not an astrology calendar, per se, the Eclipses, Full Moon and New Moon information pages allow the guest to adjust the time of the event to his/her time zone. This adjustable function gives the most complete information for planning the day in accordance to the Moon and Eclipse events. Most of the Moon Tracks astrology calendar times/dates are "stationary" based on Pacific Standard Time (PST) or Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). However, under our Moon Calendar category, the three pages have a changeable option with the default Universal Time (UT).
