Video: Longest Solar Eclipse Covers Parts of Asia

July 22, 2009

(ChattahBox) — The longest solar eclipse of the 21st century was seen in India and China on Wednesday, but was not visible to most parts of the countries due to thick cloud coverage. The village of Taregna, India, deemed by scientists as the clearest place to watch the eclipse, had been overrun for the past week with scientists and tourists who were hoping to track the bizarre changes in the atmosphere and animal behavior brought on by eclipses, marking a boom in the local economy. The eclipse became visible in the eastern city of Gauhati, and reached its peak Wednesday morning at about 6:20 a.m. local time. Over the course of six minutes and 39 seconds, it moved northeast covering a wide swath, including Nepal, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Bhutan, and China. Elsewhere, a partial eclipse was visible across much of Asia. Scientists say it will be more than a hundred years before there is such a long eclipse again.
