The working Group on Solar Eclipses regrets Dr J. Houtgast’s resignation as Chairman of the Group. However, Dr Houtgast will maintain his membership and continue to give his experience to the group.
The total eclipse of September 22,1968 was actively observed by many groups in spite of its short duration. Reports on the observations are expected to be given during the 1970IAU General Assembly.
A great deal of work has been done everywhere in view of the total eclipse of March 7, 1970.
