Solar eclipse only three weeks away

Date Posted: 2009-07-02

July 22nd is going to be a very special day in Okinawa, and everyone from educators to travel agents are taking steps to be ready.

For the first time in 46 years, a total eclipse of the sun will take place, with the spectacular show visible in Japan and Okinawa. Educators are mapping out special events for students, a community hall in Naha City has plans for a photography party, and travel agencies are booking special trips to Okinawa to view the rare event.

The eclipse will take place beginning at 9:32 a.m. on July 22nd, and last until 12:20 p.m. Stores carrying special sunglasses to view the solar eclipse report they’ve totally sold out, leading health officials to caution citizens to be careful in watching the eclipse. Temperatures are expected to drop nearly one degree centigrade during the solar eclipse.
