The rising and setting of Mercury, when near its greatest elongation from the Sun, for Washington. At the times given below, it will probably be visible.



January. & sets. May. ¢ sets. Sept. 8 sets. March. 8 rises. July. o rises. Nov. rises.

[merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][ocr errors][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small]

Mercury is brightest when at an elongation of about 22° 19', which occurs about three days before its greatest elongation east and three days after its greatest elongation west, and is always between the greatest elongation and superior conjunction. enus is brightest between inferior conjunction and greatest elongation, and when its elongation is about 39° 44'.

Eclipses for 1869.
There will be four Eclipses this year, two of the Sun and two of the Moon, as follows:

1. A partial Eclipse of the Moon, January 27th, in the evening, visible. Size, 0.458 of the diamter, or 5.496 digits, on the northern limb. See the following table for the time.

II. An Annular Eclipse of the Sun, February 11th, invisible in North America. Visible in the southern part of South America, or south of 20° latitude, and in the southern part of Africa.

III. A partial Eclipse of the Moon, July 23d, invisible in America. Visible in Eastern Asia, and Australia. Size, 0.566 of the diameter, or 6.792 digits on the southern limb.

IV. A TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE SUN, August 7th, in the afternoon, visible either as a total, or a large partial Eclipse, throughout Eastern Asia, and all of North America and the West Indies. This will be the most interesting Eclipse that has occurred or will occur in the United States for many years.

The Eclipse first begins on the earth at sunrise in the Pacific Ocean, east of Japan, in lat. 36° 53.3 N. ; long. 138° 37.4 W. of Washington. It becomes total first upon the earth in Siberia, at sunrise, in lat. 52° 41.9' N.; long. 165° 26.4' W. of Washington. The Eclipse is total at noon in Alaska, lat. 61° 46.9' N.; long. 68° 4.6' W. The line of the total Eclipse now runs southeasterly, grazing the coast near Sitka, thence running off into British America, and entering the United States near the origin of Milk River, long. 30° W.; thence through the southwest corner of Minnesota, and diagonally through Iowa, crossing the Mississippi River near Burlington, Iowa; thence through Illinois, just north of Springfield, and crossing the Ohio River near Louisville, Ky. ; thence through the southwest corner of West Virginia, and through North Carolina, just south of Raleigh, and thence to Newbern, and entering the Atlantic just north of Beaufort, N. C., and end. ing at sunset in the ocean, in lat. 31° 15.2 N., and long. 9° 36.6' E.

Along the line described above, the Eclipse will be total, and at all other places in the United States it will be partial. The partial Eclipse ends on the earth at sunset, in lat. 14° 48.9' N.; long. 13° 10' W., being near the city of Guatemala. Along the Atlantic coast, in the United States, the Eclipse ends at about sunset. For the times of the phases of this Eclipse, see the following table.

This Eclipse occurred last in 1851, July 28th, and the total phase was visible in the Arctic regions of America, and in Sweden, Norway, and Russia.
