The "solar eclipse type" property has already used in English Wikipedia (Q328) (and 3 other Wikipedias) to classify the types of solar eclipses: Category:Partial solar eclipses, Category:Total solar eclipses, Category:Annular solar eclipses, Category:Hybrid solar eclipses. The main category in Category:Solar eclipses by type. Every solar eclipse (Q3887) could be classified by only 4 types. It's important property for every solar eclipse.

  • I think the creation of "solar eclipse type" property is better because there are only 4 eclipse types. And there will never happen to add some new types in the future (after 20 years or even after 100 years). --Brateevsky (talk) 08:49, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
