It’s next week!

The Eclipse of the Century  is next Wednesday! Can you believe it?

For those in the path of its totality (those who will see the total eclipse), it’ll take place early in the morning. If you are in Shanghai, here are the times of the key moments of the eclipse.

First contact is the moment the edge of the Moon touches the Sun. Totality takes place when the Moon completely covers the Sun and there will be total darkness during the day.

Charge your camera batteries and prepare your B/W film filters. Get your pinhole cameras, welder’s glasses and solar filters ready.

It’s only 9 more days to the century’s most dramatic eclipse!
