The century’s longest solar eclipse will take place on 22 July 2009 over Shanghai, China.
The city’s inhabitants and a myriad of scientists and eclipse chasers will experience a full six minutes of darkness, revealing the solar corona. Totality will also trek through various cities and townships in India and other areas of China.
Something has hit our planetary neighbour, Jupiter, leaving a scar at the southern pole, visible by larger telescopes.
