Hundreds of Palatkans watched with a great deal of interest the eclipse of the moon which was visible yesterday evening from 5 o'clock un til about 6:15. A great shunk seem ed to have been cut out of pld Luna, taking off a portio" ' 'the man's' nose. y fJ The cause ' oV Jns' " phenomena is' explained by the fact that the great shadow of the earth extends way Xt h:to space, nearly in the direction oi the moon, the moon being a little above it at 5 o'clock in the after noon. As the sun below the western hori zon the earth's shadow, being directly opposite, must rise above the eastern horizon but the moon rises, too, be cause of the rotation of tne eartn. The moon, however, is revolving about the earth, and this motion soon carries it into the shadow. This region in which the sun's light was cut was of the shape of a great cone beginning at the tarth with a diameter equal to the . arth s diameter 8,000 miles and having a vertex 850, 000 miles away. At the distance of the moon the diameter of the shadow cone was 6C50 miles. The moon first entered this shadow at 5:58 p. m , As the light of the moon is merely the light of the sun reflected from it that portion of the moon which was :i: the shadow could not be seen. From this time more and more of t;!8 n..)cn v.as hidden until 6:41, when r.bout a fifth oi' the diameter of the moon was in the sliauow. ir.e amuunt hidden then decease :l un- iil 7:"0, when the muon was ent'. e ly out of the shadow and the eclipse was ever. It was the southern r:i:t of the moon which was hidden. The moon is not then exactly uppwlte t the sun, and thus does not pass enu.e- ly within the shadow. The appearance of the moon was the same no matter where the eclipse was seen. No one saw a larger eclipse than did here in I lorida. After two weeks, half a month, the moon moves half way around the earth and instead of being a full moon opposite to the sun is a new moon in nearly the same direction as the sun. On this occasion it is so near ly in the same direction as the sun that it cuts off a part of the sun's light. That is, the earth is in th; moon's shadow just as before the moon was in the earth's shadow. This occurs on November 22. The sun rises at 6:53. At 7:39 the moon will be seen to notch the western side of the sun. The size of the notch in creases and its position alters until the maximum eclipse occurs at 8:55, when the southern half of the suns diameter covered. Unlike eclipse of the moon, which are the same from all stations, the ellipses of the sun are seen very dn- 4 5 6 7 eights 200 131 65 200 75 37 375 4 1 325 31 9 50 12 86 2000 654 32 w ait tcte f ekcilc t.

(By United Tress.) ROME, Nov. S Reports are anx br.sly awaited from the upper Tibet River Valley which was rocked by a3 earthquake last night. Communic, t.un in the stricken area is crippled. It is feared the casualties are heavy. feiently from different places. On this occasion the shadow of the moon (ices not extend quite as far as the earth, so that in those places where the center of the mpon is een to pass exactly over the center of the sun the moon is not as large as the sun, and when exactly superposed up on the sun leaves a very small ring of the sun about it visible. For this reason it is called an annular eclipse. The places where this ring can be seen are, with the exception of Cu ba, nearly all on the ocean. It hap pens that just at the time of tha eclipse the moon is further from the Rflrth than at amy other tame this year and nearly at the greatest dis tance it ever has, and the earwi is now in that part of its path which is closest to the sun, so that the sun's disc is nearly as large as ever and the moon's disc nearh" as small as ever, so that ine r g ui usm. manning in view if most as wide as it can ever be. In this sense the eclipse is unusual. The eclipse which occurred in May was a total eclipse of nearly the lon gest possible duration. This eclipse is at the opposiite extreme.
