When the Moon passes between the Sun the Earth on 11th of July, 2010, people on southern Pacific will have a chance to observe a total or partially Solar Eclipse.

The eclipse will start at 18:15 UT on 11 July. The greatest eclipse will occur at 19:33:31 UT and the totality duration is going to last five minutes and twenty seconds. Besides the vast ocean area, its path will cover Tuamotu in French Polynesia, Easter Island, and the very southern part of Chile and Argentina, but will miss Cook Islands by about 25 kilometers.

Anyone who will be there is welcome to send us pictures taken with your astronomy camera.
