July 22, 2009 Solar Eclipse, China
Photos from the July 22, 2009 total solar eclipse, which I'd gone to observe from Jinshanwei, south of Shanghai, China. Through dense clouds, we saw part of the eclipse's partial phases, but although we were plunged into darkness for 6 minutes, we were unable to see the eclipsed sun at all during totality. Soon after totality ended, it was pouring rain.
