Report

Total Solar Eclipse 2001

The eclipse of June 21st, 2001, occurring just a few hours after the solstice, tracing a path that started in the western Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Brazil. The line swept across the Atlantic in an eastward direction and touched the continent of Africa on the coast of Angola. At maximum, off the coast of Africa, the eclipse lasted just under five minutes. Weather projections and difficulties involved in navigating that portion of the ocean doomed several attempts to get cruise ship companies into the line of totality. As the eclipse path struck land in Angola, the duration quickly shortened as it sped east. By the border of Zambia, the eclipse was under four minutes, and closing on three minutes as it entered Zimbabwe.
