Shanghai is gearing up
for what is set to be the longest total solar
eclipse this century. People around the country gathered
financial capital on Tuesday ahead of the eclipse that is due to start at 8:23 am local time on Wednesday. Astronomers say
the total eclipse will plunge Shanghai
into complete darkness for about 6 minutes. Restaurants of a good sky view are cashing in with special brunch menus.
Well, the brunch has already sold out so we have more than 300 people coming on
Wednesday at 8:00 a.m. And
no doubt it will be very exciting as everybody is watching the passage of the
sun and the moon. And we have more than 100 people on the waiting list.
Despite the fanfare,
rainy weather is reportedly set to spoil the party on Wednesday for most in Shanghai after days of
sunshine. Still this has not dampened the spirits
of some locals who say they will view the eclipse rain or shine.
I will find an outdoor space to view it. I will try not to be on the subway or
in my work place. I will try to allocate some time and wear my sun glasses or
use some film negatives to view this eclipse.
As anticipation heats up, most hope the weather will cooperate for the
once-in-a-lifetime event, offering an experience to talk about for years.
