Total Solar Eclipse [22nd July 2009]





pscompanies
On Wednesday, 2009 July 22, a total eclipse of the Sun is visible from within a narrow corridor that traverses half of Earth. The path of the Moon's umbral shadow begins in India and crosses through Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar and China. After leaving mainland Asia, the path crosses Japan's Ryukyu Islands and curves southeast through the Pacific Ocean where the maximum duration of totality reaches 6 min 39 s. A partial eclipse is seen within the much broader path of the Moon's penumbral shadow, which includes most of eastern Asia, Indonesia, and the Pacific Ocean.

It's beautiful and spectaculair. I saw one in the past, but it wasn't a complete one I think. A lot of people are interested in it aningbo, and some travel loads to see one.

By the way don't forget to quote tough ;s
