Paper Abstract

We propose an algorithm that can be used by amateur astronomers to analyze the images acquired during solar eclipses. The proposed algorithm analyzes the image, detects the eclipse and produces results for parameters like magnitude of eclipse, eclipse obscuration and the approximate distance between the Earth and the Moon.
