Report

Eclipse Chaser Report - July 2009

The eclipse path stretched from India through China and out into the Pacific Ocean. The end of the path crossed over the international dateline and ended in the South Pacific. Eclipse chasers were spread out across the path hoping for good weather. Clouds and rain intruded for many in India and China however ships at sea were able to maneuver into clear sky and aircraft along the path enjoyed clear sky above the clouds.
