The May-June 2021 eclipse season

EarthSky has re-printed our article about the forthcoming eclipse season: a total lunar eclipse on May 26, and an annular solar eclipse on June 10.

Between the years 1600 and 2599, there are 2108 eclipse seasons. Of these, 126 seasons contain a pair of full eclipses: one total or annular solar eclipse, plus one total lunar eclipse. At, we looked at the worldwide duration of each eclipse in these pairs. This is the length of time between the first and last moments the eclipse is visible from somewhere in the world, including partial and penumbral phases.
