Friday 22nd September 2006??<br /><br />It is the Autumn Equinox in the northern Hemisphere (Spring Equinox in the southern). Are you asking about September 22 generally or for just this year?? <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font color="#000080">"I suddenly noticed an anomaly to the left of Io, just off the rim of that world.

On Friday 22nd September 2006, there will be an Annular Eclipse of the Sun, mostly over the South Atlantic. Just found out. <br /><br />It is the Autumn Equinox as well, for all of us north of the Equator. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font color="#000080">"I suddenly noticed an anomaly to the left of Io, just off the rim of that world.

Cool.<br /><br />From JPL's Space Calendar, I find a few things of note:<br /><br /># Sep 22 - Annular Solar Eclipse<br /># Sep 22 - Arabsat 4B Proton M Launch<br /># Sep 22 - Comet P/1995 A1 (Jedicke) Closest Approach To Earth (3.608 AU)<br /># Sep 22 - Asteroid 4808 Ballaero Closest Approach To Earth (1.592 AU)<br /># Sep 22 - 5th Anniversary (2001), Deep Space 1, Comet Borrelly Flyby <br /><br />The equinox technically occurs on Sep 23, but it depends on what time zone you are in. alokmohan, it will be Sep 23 for you, but here in the US it will be Sep 22. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p> </p><p><font color="#666699"><em>"People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly . . . timey wimey . . . stuff."</em>  -- The Tenth Doctor, "Blink"</font></p> </div>

Cheers for that CalliArcale. I did think that the Equinox may have been on Saturday 23rd September 2006 in some eastern countries of the world. Actually here in the UK it is on the 23rd September at 4:03 AM GMT (5:03 AM BST).<br /><br />Was it really that long ago that Deep Space 1 encountered Comet Borrelly?? Time does fly when one is having fun!! <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font color="#000080">"I suddenly noticed an anomaly to the left of Io, just off the rim of that world.

Yes, but the annual part of the eclipse will only be visible from the Atlantic and a small part of South America. India will get to see the partial solar eclipse, though. How much you get to see will depend on which part of India you are in; the very edge of the eclipse zone is over Eastern India.<br /><br />Get more information here: Annular Solar Eclipse of 2005 October 03; there's a link to get actual times for cities in India.<br /><br />You may be able to see part of the corresponding lunar eclipse. On October 17, the Moon will rise over India within the Earth's penumbra. It will make a very very very small dip into the Earth's umbra -- it will likely be imperceptible, I'm afraid. If you're interested in trying anyway, here's a link to the pertinent information:<br /><br />Lunar eclipse, October 17 <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p> </p><p><font color="#666699"><em>"People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly . . . timey wimey . . . stuff."</em>  -- The Tenth Doctor, "Blink"</font></p> </div>
