In the Shadow of the Moon
In the Shadow of the Moon

On July 22, 2009, the narrow band of the moon's shadow touches Earth in the Arabian Sea. Making landfall in Surat, India, it then crosses the monsoon covered Indian-Subcontinent into China. Crossing central China the shadow shoots across the South Pacific where nightfall occurs. On this day of nature’s most extravagant celestial event, we will be ideally situated on the centerline of the path of totality in central China. We will have arrived at our eclipse site the day before, thus giving us a relaxed day to setup and prepare for totality. With legs firmly planted on the ground and tripods steady, we will be able to observe and photograph the various stages of the eclipse with ease. This will be very different from the frustrating rolling deck of shipboard viewing. “Got to have your feet on solid ground, with plenty of elbow room to observe and photograph an eclipse” says Sanjay Saxena, leader of four total solar eclipses expeditions and veteran of five. We will have ample time to soak in the amazing sight as the moon’s shadow rushes across China towards us before engulfing us in it embrace for a long 5 minutes and 30 seconds.
