Eclipses in the Regency Era

So if you are in North America you might be full of Eclipse Frenzy today. 
This got me thinking about Jane and if she ever saw a total eclipse.
Sadly she didn’t. There was no Total Solar Eclipse visible from the United Kingdom between 1724 and 1925 according to Wikipedia.
From 1775 to 1817 there were 10 partial eclipses that were visible from somewhere in the United Kingdom. For a complete list of solar eclipses visible from the United Kingdom between AD 1501 and AD 2500, see the Journal of the British Astronomical Association, February 2001.
Below is a screen shot of the eclipses that happened during the Regency.

Have a safe day today!
