Try the US Naval Observatory web-site, which also provides other data like sunrise, sunset, first light etc.
Um, never mind.

I didn't see any. You'll have to do a chart for the date/time of the eclipse to get the degee.

The American Ephemeris gives eclipses by Zodiacal position. Once you compile the eclipse list, it should be an easy matter to match the position with the dates.

I was wondering if anyone knew of a website that listed past solar and lunar eclipses (their signs and degrees)...I've found sites that list the past few, but I was thinking more on the order of the past 20+ years.
I've looked but I can't find any! Anybody know? Here you are: http://www.cafeastrology.com/eclipsessolarlunar.html They go from 1940 to 2014.

Skywatcher -- is that a book you can buy at the bookstore? I don't actually own an ephemeris...I probably should! Normally I just use astro.com.
I did find this--http://www.skyscript.co.uk/eclipse.html
It goes from 2003-2014, which is pretty nice!
Yes, you can get the ephemeris from any bookstore that carries astrology books. There are two volumes, The American Ephemeris for the 20th Century and The American Ephemeris for the 21st Century. I started calculating charts before the Cyber Age dawned, when you needed ephemerides to do it, and I still keep them handy. I like The American Ephemeris because it gives all lunations, including eclipses, by sign and degree.

Every astrologer should have an American Ephemeris at Noon and a Koch's Table of Houses.
Those are the only two things you need.

Lunar and Solar eclipses had always played an important role in mundane Vedic astrology. I shall soon provide you with their indications.
