This is wonderful to see after a long gap say 108 year. This eclipse started on 15.01.2010, 11.45 am to 1.20 pm and the full eclipse lasted for about 10 minutes. The moon covered fully the sun during 1.10 to 1.20 pm.
The last time India saw this ‘Ring of Fire’ was November 22, 1965. The next longest annular solar eclipse will only be seen in 3043. I watched this amazing event only on TV.
