about

The "Canon of Eclipses" (German "Canon der Finsternisse") by Theodor Ritter von Oppolzer is one of the great works of modern astronomy. It compiles ca. 8000 Solar and more than 5000 Lunar eclipses between the years 1207 BC and 2161 CE.

Oppolzer presented his work to the public in 1885.
Tragically by time of the official publishing in 1887 at the Imperial Academy of Sciences of Vienna he wasn´t among the living any more. Only 45 years old he died in 1886.

His Canon is freely available at
