Yes. Sun, Moon and Earth will be all in a straight line. Wink

If they really were gonna be in a straight line, then the eclipse would occur on the place on Earth where Sun is at zenith. Wink

Are you talking about the situation when Sun, Moon, observer and Earth would be in the straight line, right? Wink

Because Sun, Moon and Earth have some non-zero dimensions, total solar eclipse should be also viewable in some region where observer may be in some distance from the (ideal geometric) line Sun-Moon-Earth, so Sun may not be in zenith. Am I right?

I was talking about the opposite reasoning: if there is no solar eclipse visible for observers in the area of Earth, where Sun is at zenith, it clearly shows, that Sun, Earth and Moon are slightly misaligned, and thus not really in a perfect straight line (by that I mean their centers lay on one line).

Patna (2009 population: 1.6 million)
Chengdu (2009 population: 4 million)
Chongqing (2009 population: 4 million)
Wuhan (2009 population: 4.2 million)
Hangzhou (2009 population: 1.9 million)
Shanghai (2009 population: 15 million)

central duration | 6 minutes 39 seconds
path width at greatest eclipse | 160 miles
location of greatest eclipse | 24deg 12'N, 144deg 6'E
eclipse magnitude | 1.0799 (moon radius 7.99% bigger than the sun)

imo, even if sun,earth and moon are slightly aligned into straight, but from outer view (since we are damn so tiny) they will looked like aligned into a straight line.

does maya predicted this? hehe. who knows.

maybe something big (hopefully bless) will happened tomorrow.

any live website to shows live streaming of the eclipse?? link...

Why do so many eclipses take place over the eastern hemisphere? Nasa's eclipse website. This year only like 2 have even been visible from some part of the western hemisphere, but none visible from Michigan. Sad

Some notable images from that feed for the people who missed it. Very Happy
That was AMAZING! Now I can't wait until 2:17 pm EDT | Monday, April 8, 2024 (14.73 years from now) to see one in person. Gonna be a long wait. Sad At least that one will happen in the middle of the day, instead of early in the morning like the one I just watched online.

Google seems to be loading quite slow right now.

EDIT: Changed to thumbnail, CLICK IT TO VIEW IT

I find the second image ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL, I can see why its called the diamond ring.
