(OrganicJar) A total solar eclipse passing over some of Earth’s most densely populated regions will occur on Wednesday, July 22, 2009, and may become the most viewed eclipse ever. It will last over six and a half minutes, and it will be visible, among other places, in parts of India, Butan, Nepal, Bangladesh, China, Japan, and the Marshall Islands.
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. Here are some resources where you can find information about the eclipse, photos, and live video streams from various parts of the world.
