What do Patna, India, and Wuhan, China, have in common?

And the Ryukyu Islands in Japan, too?

Well, they are three of the cities that lie in the path of totality of the century’s most dramatic eclipse on 22 July 2009. At its longest point, the eclipse will plunge the morning into total darkness for 6 minutes and 39 seconds.

To whet your appetite a bit, check out the animations for Patna, India and Wuhan, China below. The times for key points of the eclipse in UT/GMT, as well as local times, are provided below.
