23 Jul

On July 22, 2009, if you found yourself in India, China, Taiwan, or floating in the pacific, you might have been greeted with the longest solar eclipse of the century.

 These images show the earth at 8:30am Taiwan time, and one hour later when the moon completely over overlaps the suns disc in totality. The shadow of the moon you can see here centered over Taiwan at 9:30am.

People from all over the world came out to witness this eclipse as it made itself visable throughout asia. With a total of 6 minutes of full eclipse made over the pacific ocean.
