FOR 1897.
HENRY ECKFORD RHOADES,

Editor:

ECLIPSES, 1897. (Astronomical calculations made expressly for The Tribune Almanac by Berlin H.

Wright, Penn Yan, N. Y.)
There will be two eclipses this year, both of the sun, and visible as follows:

1. An annular eclipse of the sun, February 1, visible in the Southern and Atlantie States, near sunset, as a small partial eciipse upon the sun's southern limb. The eclipse will be invisible north of a line drawn from near Lowell, Mass., through Harrisburg, Penn., Memphis, Texarkana and Waco, Tex. At Boston, New-York, Philadelphia, Washington and Nashville the eclipse will be very small, being scarcely more than a contact of limbs about sunset, the sun setting with the eclipse on. This eclipse will return February 13, 1915, when it will be visible in South Africa.

II. An annular eclipse of the sun, July 29, visible as a partial eclipse upon the sun's southern limb throughout the United States, except in Alaska. This eclipse will return August 10, 1915, when it will be visible in India and Southern Asia.

TABLE I. By adding the numbers in the annexed table for any given latitude to the time of meridian passage of Polaris (the Pole Star), in Table III, the time of its greatest western elongation is found. If the same number be subtracted instead of added, we get the time of greatest eastern elongation. At the time of either elon
