Total Solar Eclipse July 22, 2009

I was 7 years old the first time I witnessed first solar eclipse in my life. Several days after I was in elementary school, I was so afraid to neither having friends nor facing scary teachers in school. Palembang back at 1989. The fear of this phenomena was even bigger than the fear of being in school. I had no idea when one day the sky turned into dark and I was there, running into the class to hide and was afraid bad things happened. Superstition which I had been listening to came to my life.

But then I knew that it was solar eclipse, which is scientifically natural and explainable.

Today, July 22, 2009, total solar eclipse was visible within narrow corridor which began in India and traveled thru Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, southern Japan and Pacific Ocean. Total solar eclipse is one of the most fascinating astronomical phenomena that people from all over the world travel to the corridor to see this once-in-a-century eclipse. The nearest will be seen again in June 13, 2132, as predicted. And what special is the total solar eclipse today is the longest one in 21st century, lasted up to 6 minutes and 39 seconds.

Some awesomeness of total solar eclipse in history here.


Universe is trying to wow us with this phenomena.

I am the sort of hombre who enjoys to taste original things. Currently I'm building my personal photovoltaic panels. I'm doing it all by myself without the assistance of my staff. I'm utilizing the net as the only path to acheive that. I ran across a really amazing website that explains how to make solar panels and wind generators. The site explains all the steps needed for building pv panels.

I am not really sure bout how accurate the info given there is. If some guys over here who have experience with these things can have a peak and give your feedback in the page it would be awesome and I would highly appreciate it, cause I really would love to try solar panel construction.

Tnx for reading this. U guys rock.
