'Take-Home-an-Eclipse-Plan', workshop on Longest Total Solar Eclipse of the 21st century

 Eclipse Chasers Athenaeum Announcement:

The greatest eclipse of the 21st century is just a few months away. The eclipse is passing across the entire breadth of India. The wide path of totality passes over the states of Gujarat, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Assam, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh. The eclipse passes through highly populated regions of India. Millions of citizens will watch the eclipse occurring in the sky over their cities. Apart from the wide path of totality the entire country will witness a partial eclipse in the morning hours of Wednesday, 22nd July. The significance of the eclipse is heightened as it is occurring in the International Year of Astronomy.

It’s a cliché, but true, this is the eclipse of a lifetime for Indians in their home country. It’s an opportunity that cannot be missed, the next Total Solar Eclipse occurs over India only on 20th March 2034! Although there is an eclipse scheduled to occur on 15th January 2010, it’s an Annular Solar Eclipse and is visible over southern part of India, around Kanya Kumari and Adam's Bridge.

To prepare for the eclipse, Eclipse Chasers Athenæum, the eclipse sphere of SPACE, is conducting ‘Solar Eclipse Workshop’ on 9th to 11th January, 2009 at New Delhi.

Eminent scientists, experienced eclipse chasers, eclipse planners from India and abroad are conducting sessions in the workshop. The sessions will deal with observing, photographing, planning, logistics and showing the eclipse to a large number of audiences in your organisation, school and city. The workshop is a must for everyone with eclipse on their minds, be it astronomers, adventurers, photographers.

This is a workshop not to be missed, just the like the eclipse of July 2009, It's an opportunity of a lifetime for Indians in home country.
