Solar Eclipse in China – Longest of the 21st Century

On July 22 of this year, China and part of Asia saw the longest solar eclipse of this century – six minutes and 39 seconds long.  The next longest solar eclipse?  I certainly won’t see it, as it’s supposed to take place in 2132.  Maybe Bernie Madoff can see it when he gets out of prison.

Boston.com’s The Big Picture blog has some absolutely stellar (bwahahaa) images of the eclipse – I posted 3 smaller ones, but the blog has such better shots, if I do say so myself.  Also check out a small video below.
