    NEW DELHI: Sky gazers await for the longest total solar eclipse of the 21st century on July 22 as it will provide a rare opportunity to witness [​IMG][​IMG]

    Sky gazers await for the longest total solar eclipse of this century as it will provide a rare chance to witness the grand event in India. (TOI File Photo)



    the grand event for the people in west, central, east and north-east India.

    A total eclipse occurs when the Sun is completely obscured by the Moon. The intensely bright disk of the Sun is replaced by the dark silhouette of the Moon, SPACE President C B Devgun said.

    During the total eclipse, totality is visible only from a narrow track on the surface of the Earth.

    The countries to witness the path of the Moon's umbral shadow are India and Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar and China.

    In India, the shadow sweeps over the cities of Surat, Indore, Bhopal, Varanasi and Patna. Travelling across Bhutan, the eclipse will be visible in Nepal, Bangladesh, and Burma (Myanmar), before reaching China at 06:35 IST, he said.

    China's largest city Shanghai will experience the total solar eclipse for five minutes, he said, adding across the East China Sea, the eclipse will sweep over Japan's Ryukyu Islands and Iwo Jima.

    It says it will be visible in west, central, east and north-east India. So I think it will be visible partially.

    Partial eclipses can be seen from most cities in India. The Eclipse will start at Surat, and Varanasi or Patna are the best places to catch it. Cox and Kings, with Jet Lite, has chartered a flight that will travel in the shadow of the eclipse. This is the best way to view the eclipse, if you have around seventy grand to spare. Last one in our lifetime - unless the medical profession gets a cure for old age or something.
