Abstract:

The methods used to obtain and analyze the results of two annular eclipses in Africa by Lockheed USAF expeditions are described. Comparison is made with University of Manchester results and Watts Atlas of the Marginal Zone of the moon. The 1962 July 31 eclipse agrees well with Watts for local irregularities but does contain a discrepancy. The 1963 January 25 shows good correlation with the same discrepancy. A description of the expeditions and recommendations for future work is also made in this report. Author
