This is the eclipse in Figure 2-5, about which much has been said already. The map gives locations from where it can be seen: greatest eclipse at 03:40 points to the western Atlantic. It is visible throughout the Americas and in part from Africa and Europe. Totality lasts for 53 minutes. (Note also that there is a transit of Mercury nine days earlier, on May 7. This may also be seen from the eastern parts of North America, although Europe and Asia are better located because the transit straddles 08:00 UT.)
