    Hi all,
    Can anyone recommend software for creating diagrams showing eclipse tracks and charts?
    I used to have stuff to do it years ago, back in the days of DOS, but ideally would prefer something that will work on a modern system.

    I’d like to be able to show, for solar and lunar eclipses, the eclipse track projected onto the Earth’s surface and what the eclipse looks like in the sky at various stages.

    A good example is NASA’s eclipses page: http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/eclipse.html

    Thanks!
    Mark

    I use Occult 4

    It’s more than the sum of its parts.
