First Paragraph | The magnitude of the solar eclipse of 1916 December 24 is about as small as any that can occur in practice, being only one and one-tenth per cent, of the sun’s diameter, according to the American Ephemeris. Its visibility is confined to a small section of unfrequented ocean, about half-way between the Cape of Good Hope and the South Pole. For these two reasons, probably, the Ephemeris does not give a map.
