Eclipses for the Year 1867.
There will be two eclipses of the Sun and two of the Moon.
An annular eclipse of the Sun March 6. Invisible in America, bat visible in Europe, Africa, and Asia. II. A partial eclipse of the Moon early in the morning of Wednesday, March 20. Visible throughout America. In California and Oregon it will begin in the evening of the 19th. Size, 9.756 digits on the southern limb. For the times of its phases, see innexed table.
III. A total eclipse of the Sun August 29. Invisiblo in the United States, but visible in South America.
IV. A partial eclipse of the Moon, Friday evening, Sept. 13. Visible in America generally. This eclipse will begin before the Moon rises at places west of Boston, and it will therefore rise more or less eclipsed. In the Pacific States this eclipse is wholly invisible. Size, 8.448 digits on the northern limb. For the times of the several phases, see the annexed table.
CHARACTERS EXPLAINED.- Mercury, Venus, Mars, 2 Jupiter, Saturn, Moon, Sun, 8 Opposition or half a circle apart, Quadrature or quarter of a circle apart, Conjunction or together, having the same right ascension; the word near, used above, means the same, and indicates that the two bodies are then on a line running from the North Pole through both; gr. elon., greatest elongation or farthest distance from the Sun; stationary, when the planet is without apparent motion, and is about to move in a direction contrary to that it last had. The above table enables us to find the planets throughout the year.
OCCULTATIONS.-The Moon will occult, or eclipse the beautiful star Aldebaran (a Tauri), Feb. 12th, visible. The star instantly disappears behind the eastern limb of the Moon, at Washington, at 10h. 43m. evening, and reappears at 11h. 46m. Mercury will be eclipsed by the Moon, May 2d, at 4h. 2m. at Washington, being just before the Moon rises. The planet will instantly appear on the western side at 5h. 2m. On the 5th of May it will eclipse the star Aldebaran again, visible. At Washington the immersion occurs at 6h. 59m. evening, and the emersion at 7h. 53m. The same star will be visibly eclipsed again Nov. 13th, at 3h. 5in. morning, at Washington, and reappear at 4h. 13m.
Spring begins March 20, 1867, 8h. 30m. evening. | Autumn begins Sept. 23, 1867, 7h. 27m. morning.
JUPITER Will be Evening Star until February 3, being then in conjunction with the Sun, and lost in its light. Thence Morning Star until May 27, when it reaches its western quadrature. During the rest of the year it will be Evening Star, and rather interesting. August 26, it will be largest and at the opposition, rising about sunset, and will appear three times as large as Mars did on January 10. On December 9 it will be 100 due south of the brightest star in the Urn.
MERCURY will be brightest, and at the most favorable stations for visibility, March 6, July 3, and October 28, being then in the west, and Evening Star soon after sunset; also April 25, August 24, and December 12, being then in the east as Morning Star just before sunrise.
New and Valuable Tide Table of 110 Places.
To find the time of high-water at any of the places named in the following table, add the time indicated in the first column of figures to the time of "Moon South," found in the calendar pages. EXAMPLE: Required the time of high-water at New Haven for May 4th and 7th. For the 4th, Moon South, at 0h. 24m. in the afternoon, which added to 11h. 16m. gives 11h. 40m. of the same evening for high-water. On the 6th, Moon South at 2h. 24m. evening, which added as before, gives 13h. 40m., or 1 o'clock 40m. in the morning of the 7th, for high-water. There are two tides during the passage of the moon from the meridian, around to the meridian again, and they are about 12h. 26m. apart.
