Total Solar Eclipse, July 22, 2009


On July 22nd, 2009, viewers in India and Southeast Asia will be treated to a total solar eclipse. With an incredibly long totality of 6 minutes and 39 seconds, this solar eclipse will be the longest solar eclipse until 2132! Totality occurs at 2:35 UTC. This eclipse will be visible starting in India, moving through Nepal, Bangladesh, China, and the southern end of Japan, finally ending in the South Pacific. Of course, the best place to see the eclipse would be at maximum totality, seen best from Iwo Jima. If you can't get there, though, any viewing area in the maps below will give an excellent show! To see a detailed map of the total eclipse's path, click any of the maps below.




The eclipse's path through India, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Bhutan.

The eclipse's path through southern Japan.

For more detailed maps, see NASA's page on the eclipse.

SAFETY FIRST!


Although you will want to look at this eclipse, DO NOT LOOK AT A SOLAR ECLIPSE without proper safety equipment. Doing so can cause permanent and irreversible eye damage and possibly blindness.

In order to safely view this eclipse use a pinhole eclipse viewer. Here's how to make one for cheap.

Eclipse Predictions by Fred Espenak, NASA's GSFC

UPDATE


The eclipse has now occured, and video is available. I've posted some pictures, and a couple of vids.

Clear skies!

She told me she just didn’t see herself as a leader and didn’t realize that other people at the school saw her as a leader as well
