Default See the Longest Solar Eclipse of the Century Online

Tomorrow, on the 22nd of July 2009. the longest solar eclipse of this century will occur; it will last over six and a half minutes

It is an extraordinary event; the next solar eclipse that’ll last that long will occur on 13th of June, 2132. If your location doesn’t permit you to see the eclipse directly, worry not, as you can still follow it online. We’ve gathered some resources where you can find information about the eclipse, photos, and live video streams from various parts of the world

I think I remember a solar eclipse when I was a child. Also, if I remember correctly, you are not supposed to look at it? Is there a safe way my son and I can watch it without watching it on the internet?

You'd have to go to India, Butan, Nepal, Bangladesh, China, Japan, or the Marshall Islands to view it directly.

okay. I seem to remember something about using a box with a hole in it or some kind of piece of glass. Does that sound right?

Something like that, it's not so much the viewing as watching the sky go dark and the stars come out during a total eclipse - the spooky part.


NASA has their links up too

poke a pinhole in a piece of cardboard. stick a tack through a business card. you can see quite a bit through that tiny hole.

the big deal is looking directly at the sun. the pinhole basically reduces the size of your pupil and the amount light allowed to enter your eyeball.

Indian astrologers view coming eclipse as a sign of potential doom

MUMBAI (AFP) – Indian astrologers are predicting violence and turmoil across the world as a result of this week's total solar eclipse, which the superstitious and religious view as a sign of potential doom.

In Hindu mythology, the two demons Rahu and Ketu are said to "swallow" the sun during eclipses, snuffing out its life-giving light and causing food to become inedible and water undrinkable.

Pregnant women are advised to stay indoors to prevent their babies developing birth defects, while prayers, fasting and ritual bathing, particularly in holy rivers, are encouraged.

They'll probably throw rocks at it.

Sadly, THIS is the mentality of the emerging economies of this world...
