Solar eclipse of December 13, 1898

A partial solar eclipse occurred on December 13, 1898 before summer. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. A partial solar eclipse occurs in the polar regions of the Earth when the center of the Moon's shadow misses the Earth.

It was the last of three solar eclipses that took place that year, the only one that was partial. It was the last three of solar saros 111, the last two eclipses of the cycle were on December 24, 1916 and January 5, 1935.The next eclipse was on January 11, 1899 in the Northern Hemisphere.

Solar eclipse of November 20, 1873

A partial solar eclipse occurred on November 20, 1873 during spring. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. A partial solar eclipse occurs in the polar regions of the Earth when the center of the Moon's shadow misses the Earth.

It was the last of two all partial eclipses that took place that year. It was part of solar saros 150.The next eclipse was on April 16, 1874 in the same hemisphere, it covered the smaller part of the area of the previous eclipse including the northernmost of Antarctica along with Prime Meridian, the ice shelf with the island would be inside the umbral portion which was a total eclipse.
