Solar Eclipse on 22 Jul 2009

There is a total solar eclipse on 22 Jul 2009, which is next Wednesday. For this rare astronomical phenomenon, it is lucky that it will be partially visible in Singapore too.

According to a local website, the partial eclipse is visible at the following timings:
Singapore 08:40 09:43 09:11

Well, I have never seen any solar eclipse before, be it partial or full. I have set my reminder and alarm on my handphone. Boss is not around next week, so I should have no problem to sneak out for a couple of minutes to witness this interesting natural phenomenon.

Chinese folklore says that solar eclipse is a bad omen. Disaster may strike... Mmmh.... Let's see how it goes this year. 2009, a year of change!
