zArk Posted August 4, 2020 Share Posted August 4, 2020 @peter I can't figure that the western point of USA gets sight of eclipse first , Then the sighting occurs eastward But the earth is spinning east So the moon that's apparently slower somehow gets inline with the sun faster than the spin The alignment is perfect for moon size, distance, sun size and observer The earth/moon together would have to perform a 'drift' on the camber of the solar system (fast and furious tokyo style) and then flip back to normal sun ellipse Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
