Solar total eclipse (2017) calculations error
Since the 2017 Aug 21 solar total eclipse is coming across the US, and particular the southeast of the US . I was using Stellarium to view the eclipse from the location of the Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute with Long,Lat location of -82.8753, 35.1986 (which is near Rosman, NC, USA) around 1800UT and Stellarium does not show it as a "total" eclipse. Stellarium does show the event as an ALMOST total eclipse but not a total. If you look at the NASA/GSFC website
the website map shows that the location will be in a total eclipse. Hence the Stellarium calculations are a little off. I pass this along to you incase there is a desire for someone to be notified of this error.
I enclose a script that shows that the solar total eclipse is not total:
// Name: 2017 solar eclipse
// Description: Shows the solar eclipse in 2017 as seen
// from Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute, NC.
