(1) The Google Earth (available for MacOS X, Windows and Linux) files, draw the solar eclipses paths across Earth’s surface (calculations by Fred Espenak, NASA/GSFC).
The northern and southern limits of a solar eclipse path are plotted in pink while the central line is blue.
(2) ( info at ) Google Earth 4 User Guide.
(3) Xavier M. Jubier's information says
The "dynamic local circumstances predictions at the click’s location", a feature available with my interactive Google maps, can’t be implemented as is because the Google Earth client application provides no means of getting the current pointer position.
However, by clicking on the framed cross-hair cursor always located at the center of the view, you will obtain the local circumstances at that location (have a look at this sample).
(4) The Five Millennium Canon of Solar Eclipses Database will give you access to every eclipses over the -1999 to +3000 period.
(5) When a link is followed by symbol (earth like globe with swirls) , it means you have
two different files.
(6) The first one is a plain Google Earth file
(7) the symbol, being the second one, is a self-contained Google Earth file with new high resolution satellite image overlays.
(8) You can then overlay meteorological data files with the eclipse path as well as maps of
* meteor crater from all over the world
