Is there something strange with the gravity during total solar eclipses?

  1. Aug 20, 2009 #1
    I have found some papers about strange observations in the earth gravity during total solar eclipses. There is a very small difference (~10^-9) but there is a differnce (see the attachment).
    Is there the possibility to be a new gravity phenomenon?

    I think that it can be an atmospheric phenomenon, there are a lot of air turbulence during eclipses which maybe can cause these differences...

    Your opinions please.
