Wow~! It's amazing. I can finally blog. Hm.. Maybe blogger doesn't like me? Boo~ Anyway, as I said I will.. Let me blog about the 22/7/2009 solar eclipse. Wanted to watch it in the morning but I can't wake up so I watched the repeated telecast at night. Somehow, it doesn't look amazing and I don't feel anything special watching it on TV. But I saw many people in China gathering to watch the eclipse in an open air. Hm.. I presume that atmosphere would be better. Somehow, watching it on TV just makes me feel normal, as if the eclipse is nothing that special.

Okie.. In case you are wondering what is the solar eclipse all about...

"The solar eclipse of 22 July 2009 was the longest total solar eclipse during the 21st century, not to be surpassed until June 2132.[1] It lasted a maximum of 6 minutes and 39 seconds off the coast of Southeast Asia,[2] causing tourist interest in eastern China, India and Nepal.[2][3][4] This was the second in the series of three eclipses in a one-month period, being book-ended by two minor penumbral lunar eclipses, first on July 7 and last on August 6."
