Introducing Solar/Lunar Eclipse and Sun/Moon Phase Pages on My Site

The Annular Solar Eclipse quickly approaches, followed this Full Moon (October 28th) with a Partial Lunar Eclipse.
While the phases of the eclipse differ from location to location, the global solar eclipse data is as follows:
- Partial Eclipse begins: Oct 14 15:04:52 UTC
- Full Eclipse begins: Oct 14 16:11:11 UTC
- Maximum Eclipse: Oct 14 18:00:45 UTC
- Full Eclipse ends: Oct 14 19:50:16 UTC
- Partial Eclipse ends: Oct 14 20:56:32 UTC
The following lunar eclipse data is as follows:
- Penumbral Eclipse begins: Oct 28 18:04:14 UTC
- Partial Eclipse begins: Oct 28 19:39:28 UTC
- Maximum Eclipse: Oct 28 20:15:09 UTC
- Partial Eclipse ends: Oct 28 20:50:47 UTC
- Penumbral Eclipse ends: Oct 28 22:26:08 UTC
To celebrate the Solar Eclipse, I decided to add a few more pages to my site.
All of the information on these pages was calculated using my program syzygy, which uses formulas found in "Astronomical Algorithms 2nd Edition" by Jean Meeus.
Along with adding the aforementioned pages, I also added a few pages to my wiki.
All of this information took me most of this last week or 2 to calculate correctly. There are other resources for much of this data on the web already, but I'm happy I could provide this information over gopher and gemini.
Have a happy solar eclipse! Be sure to not look directly into the Sun!
