Tianhuangping - China, 22 July 2009

Total Solar Eclipse

The Total Solar Eclipse in 2009 had one of the longest duration (6 min 39 sec). It was observed from Tianhuangping in China, a place very close to Shanghai. I was part of a larger group which came from Thessaloniki, Greece organized by the local "Friends of Astronomy" Club.

We were all lucky to observe the very rare (long duration) total eclipse, even through the hazy clouds. Most of the surrounding regions were totally covered by clouds, sometimes with heavy rain. Overall, it was a successful observation and an amazing expedition.
