 Total Solar Eclipse of 2009 July 22
 in Japan, China and the Marshall Islands

The greatest point of eclipse (totality phase during 6 min 39 sec : the longest for the remainer of our life and of the 21st century) lies in the Pacific Ocean southeast of Japan. The mountainous Japanese island of Ishinomura-Kitaio will offer us 6 minutes and 36 seconds of darkness, and at the same time the best weather on all the eclipse path.
To observe the 2009 July 22 total solar eclipse, my "Eclipse-City" associates and myself will offer tours on Ishinomura-Kitaio island starting from Iwo Jima island, where a famous historical World War II battle took place. Following the 2008 eclipse in China, another tour will start from Shanghai and explore new Chinese provinces such as Tibet. And a luxury cruise on a yacht will bring a small group to Enewetak atoll in the Marshall Islands.

You can use this solar eclipse calculator to compute the local circumstances of the eclipse, and the solar eclipse timer notifies the beginning of the various events. A time exposure calculator is there to help you choose your camera settings.
