A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the Sun and the Earth so that the Sun is fully or partially covered. This can only happen during a new moon, when the Sun and Moon are in conjunction as seen from the Earth। At least two and up to five solar eclipses can occur each year on Earth, with between zero and two of them being total eclipses. Total solar eclipses are nevertheless rare at any location because during each eclipse totality exists only along a narrow corridor in the relatively tiny area of the Moon's umbra.
Millions of people in India, China, and other parts of Asia will witness a total solar eclipse on July 22, 2009. Many claim that this solar eclipse will be the longest total solar eclipse in the 21st century, and will not be surpassed in duration until June 13, 2132. The eclipse’s maximum duration of totality will be six minutes and 39 seconds.
The eclipse of the Sun has traditionally been viewed with dread over the ages, as the great giver of life seems inexplicably to disappear from the sky. Birds prepare for bed; the sky darkens in the middle of the day. Many astrologers predict that something dreadful is about to happen , and the solar eclipse can have a big effect on our personal lives . It is also propagated that since this eclipse is very long it will be very powerful and will have considerable effect on human beings.
As far as my knowledge goes eclipse will never impact human beings at personal level … never… never. But it can surely impact major happenings across the country like earthquakes or major upheavals.
In my opinion instead of worrying about any ill effect that this solar eclipse will have on us we should just take life as normal and do all our daily routines as usual or rather enjoy this celestial event।
So don’t worry and be happy !
