Total Solar Eclipse 2010 in America on July 11, 2010 – People have to witness two remarkable events today, July 11, 2010, the first one is the World Cup 2010 Finals featuring the Netherlands vs Spain live at the South Africa at exactly 2:30 pm ET and the other one is the total solar eclipse which is set to happen in the Earth today.
Apparently, the eclipse will begin at 2:15 p.m. ET north of New Zealand near the Cook Islands, continue past Easter Island and ending in Chile at the southernmost tip of South America at 4:52 p.m. ET. Furthermore, the eclipse will last the longest for 5 minutes 20 seconds over open Pacific waters at 3:33 p.m. ET on Sunday July 11.
This will be one of the best chances for those around the world to witness the total solar eclipse. Some parts of the America were not able to view the partial lunar eclipse so you better grab this opportunity now to make up somewhat for this rare event on Earth.
Please stay tuned here for the possible video live coverage of the Total Solar Eclipse 2010.
This is the 27th eclipse of Saros 146 (Espenak and Meeus, 2006). The series began on 1541 Sep 19 with the first of an unusually long series of 22 partial eclipses. The first central eclipse was total with a maximum duration of 4.1 minutes on 1938 May 29. Subsequent total eclipses in the series have seen an increase in the duration of totality. The 2010 eclipse marks the longest totality of Saros 146 because future durations will decrease.The series produces the first of 4 hybrid eclipses on 2172 Oct 17. The remaining 24 central eclipses of Saros 141 are all annular and span the period from 2244 Dec 01 to 2659 Aug 10. The series ends with a set of 13 partial eclipses the last of which occurs on 2893 Dec 29.

From Appearances, this move indicates that the navy is moving most assets from the gulf, out of fear of a methane release/tsunami. A national disaster of this magnitude would be an inviting opportunity for our enemies to make a move (never let a chrisis go to waste, as the admin. puts it), hence a bold defensive statement to both the Russians and Chinese, in anticipation of such.
So, in short order after the Gulf of Mexico BP disaster, we have Patriot Missiles in Poland, 46 Navy ships to Costa Rica...
