Solar Eclipse as seen over India – 11 minute long eclipse


15 January 2010: This solar eclipse is the longest annular solar eclipse that will occur in the 21st century, lasting 11 minutes. In an annular eclipse, the sun and moon are directly in line, but since the moon is smaller, it leaves the blazing outer rim of the sun visible
