Total Solar Eclipse - August 1 2008

The next total solar eclipse will occur on the first of August in 2008. Much of the eclipse path crosses areas of the Earth that are not inhabited or are difficult to reach.
Starting near the northeastern tip of Canada the path moves northeast into the Arctic Circle over northern Greenland. It then passes over the Arctic Ocean to northern Russia moving south east into Siberia. Novosibirsk is one major city that the path covers before passing over the Altai mountains into China near the Mongolian border. The eclipse path ends in the middle of northern China.
