Éclipse de Soleil de 1870

L’éclipse de soleil du 22 décembre 1870 a pu être observée en bonne partie à Greenwich, et la réduction des observations a prouvé que les erreurs des tables de la lune de Hansen étaient petites, et sensiblement les mêmes près de la conjonction que dans les autres parties de l’orbite
