 Calendar     Calendar Date at instant of Greatest Eclipse.
   Date       Gregorian Calendar is used for dates after 1582 Oct 15.
              Julian Calendar is used for dates before 1582 Oct 04.

    TD of     Dynamical Time (TD) of Greatest Eclipse, the instant
  Greatest    when the axis of the Moon's shadow cone passes closest
  Eclipse     to Earth's center.

    DT        Delta T (?T) is the arithmetic difference between
              Dynamical Time and Universal Time. It is a measure of
              the accumulated clock error due to the variable
              rotation period of Earth.

   Luna       Lunation Number is the number of synodic months since
    Num       New Moon of 2000 Jan 06. The Brown Lunation Number
              can be determined by adding 953.

   Saros      Saros series number of eclipse.
    Num       (Each eclipse in a Saros is separated by an interval
               of 18 years 11.3 days.)

   Ecl.       Eclipse Type where:
   Type         P  = Partial Eclipse.
                A  = Annular Eclipse.
                T  = Total Eclipse.
                H  = Hybrid or Annular/Total Eclipse.

              Second character in Eclipse Type:
                "m" = Middle eclipse of Saros series.
                "n" = Central eclipse with no northern limit.
                "s" = Central eclipse with no southern limit.
                "+" = Non-central eclipse with no northern limit.
                "-" = Non-central eclipse with no southern limit.
                "2" = Hybrid path begins total and ends annular.
                "3" = Hybrid path begins annular and ends total.
                "b" = Saros series begins (first eclipse in series).
                "e" = Saros series ends (last eclipse in series).

   Gamma      Distance of the shadow cone axis from the center
              of Earth (units of equatorial radii) at the
              instant of greatest eclipse.

   Ecl.       Eclipse magnitude is the fraction of the Sun's
   Mag.       diameter obscured by the Moon. For annular, total and
              hybrid eclipses, this value is actually the diameter
              ratio of Moon/Sun.


   Lat.       Latitude where greatest eclipse is seen.

   Long.      Longitude where greatest eclipse is seen.

   Sun        Sun's altitude at greatest eclipse.
   Alt

   Sun        Sun's azimuth at greatest eclipse.
   Azm

   Path       Width of the path of totality or annularity
  Width       at greatest eclipse (kilometers).

 Central      Central Line Duration of total or annular phase
   Dur.       at greatest eclipse.
