Total Solar Eclipse 2009 in China

China is reportedly the best location to view the longest total solar eclipse this century on 22 July 2009.

The total solar eclipse of the 22nd of July 2009 is particularly special as it will be the longest eclipse of the 21st Century. Being 6 minutes 38 seconds at the point of maximum eclipse, nobody alive in the world today will see such an event again in their lifetime. The next eclipse exceeding this duration is expected to come in 123 years.
