IV. THE programme of work to be attempted in the Indian eclipse of next year, referred to in the last article, carries me back very vividly to the eclipse of 1871, also observed in India. The shadow path of the eclipse of that year also cut the west coast of India, but at a much more southerly point than Viziadurg. The coast station was then Baikal, and from this point the shadow swept over the land in a south-east direction, as shown in the accompanying map (Fig. 13).
