      So, over in my “Astronomical Events 2022?” topic, I had suggested that links to sights with astronomical events be included in the information. As I went back to that tab, and browsed around, logged in, updated my world clock, … I stumbled upon this interesting article: https://www.timeanddate.com/news/astronomy/earth-rotation-affects-eclipses

      Good thing Randy didn’t choose one of those two cities. 🙂

        Wow. I was taught that Earth’s rotation was slowly slowing as the tides transferred its spin angular momentum to the Moon’s orbital angular momentum. This suggests that Earth’s mass distribution has contracted a bit.
