Solar EclipseOn 22 July, a total solar eclipse will be able to be seen in India, a number of of the Japanese islands, Pacific Ocean and China.

The eclipse will start at dawn in the western division of India, move to the eastern division of India, cross to Mynamar and then move to the tiny islands of Japan & China. The eclipse will be the longest total eclipse this century, lasting 6 minutes and 39 seconds at its maximum point.

However, whilst scientist are flocking to Asia to see the eclipse, millions are planning to lock themselves indoors, giving in to superstitious myths about the phenomenon. What a shame.
