Since the beginning of the inhabitants of different parts of Earth have witnessed so far, 4 total solar eclipse, 6 prastenoobrazni eclipses, one of which was weird, and a mixed one eclipse, according to statistics quoted by DPA . The first total eclipse of the 21st century was on June 21, 2001
It began in the southern Atlantic Ocean and across South Africa and Madagascar before ending in the Indian Ocean. On December 14, 2001 there was a solar eclipse. It started northwest of the Hawaiian Islands before crossing Costa Rica and Nicaragua. On June 10, 2002 was a new solar eclipse. It started from the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, crossed the Pacific and ended off the coast of Mexico. On December 4, 2002 was seen a total eclipse where the moon's shadow passed over Southern Africa and Indian Ocean and reached South Australia. On May 31, 2003 was a solar eclipse observed in the outermost parts of the Northern Hemisphere. According to astronomers, it's weird. His movement was from east to west instead of the typical path from west to east because the moon's shadow passed across the North Pole. The phenomenon was first observed in Scotland, then to Iceland and then Greenland. On April 8, 2005 was the so-called hybrid solar eclipse - again an unusual phenomenon of mixed type in which the eclipse seems to be complete in one part of the way and prastenoobrazno elsewhere. This hybrid eclipse began in the Pacific Ocean southeast of New Zealand as prastenoobrazen phenomenon. He became a total solar eclipse over the open ocean. But until it reaches Costa Rica, it was again turned into a solar eclipse. The phenomenon was then observed in Panama, Colombia and Venezuela. On October 3, 2005 there was a solar eclipse. It was observed over the Atlantic Spain, Mediterranean, North Africa and Indian Ocean. On March 29, 2006 Total solar eclipse crossed half the Earth, passed over Brazil, Atlantic Ocean, Africa, Turkey, Caucasus, Russia, Kyrgyzstan and Mongolia. On September 22, 2006 solar eclipse was observed first in Venezuela, then Brazil, then in the south Atlantic. On August 1, 2008 had a total solar eclipse that crossed half the earth by way of the moon's shadow on the ground stretched from Canada to northern Greenland, the Arctic, central Russia, Mongolia and China. On January 26, 2009 solar eclipse was observed over the Indian Ocean and Indonesia. The next solar eclipse today after a total solar eclipse will occur on January 15, 2010, recalls the topic Wednesday. The next total eclipse will be on hand July 11, 2010 However, it will be almost entirely over the southern Pacific Ocean. His witnesses will be Easter Island, known for its odd rock solid figures. Otherwise, statistics show that ancient astronomers were first documented solar eclipse in China 4000 years ago, added Monday. One of the most ancient legends associated with this phenomenon, describes Chinese emperor who ordered the execution of two court astronomers who failed to predict the solar eclipse. Today's total eclipse will last longest in part, the astronomers estimated between 6 minutes and 39 seconds and 6 minutes and 44 seconds recall AFP and DPA. That record, however, will be placed over an almost uninhabited area of the Pacific. The record will be improved until 2132 so that today's phenomenon is defined by experts as the longest total solar eclipse for the entire 21st century, noted AFP and DPA. Moon shadow will slide on the ground in a corridor with a length of 15,000 km and a width of 200 km. Way of the lunar shadow will pass through India, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, China and finally will reach the southern Japanese islands of the Ryukyu archipelago, located between Taiwan and Kyushu Island, recalled Monday. In these areas, the phenomenon will be full, while in most of East Asia and Indonesia would have only a partial eclipse, recalled Monday.
