Fade to Black

This morning the longest solar eclipse of the 21st century occurred and apparently Shanghai was meant to be one of the best places on Earth to witness it. Unfortunately, like so many days here in Shanghai, the weather was cloudy and rainy. We were going to do a picnic in the park, but because of the weather we decided just to watch from home. It was actually pretty eery how dark it got during the main part of the eclipse. I didn’t know how dark it would actually get, but it was as dark as night for at least 5 minutes. It was pretty interesting even though we couldn’t experience it completely.

Check out Youku for videos of the eclipse from other parts of China.
