If now you’re in China, you will be the lucky one, because the solar eclipse will take place on July 22, 2009, in China, which will be a longest total eclipse of the sun that will occur in the twenty-first century.|

Well, when we see the solar eclipse, what should we pay attention to? We can’t look it directly, we can use special tools to protect our eyes, such as two or three pieces of scrap film, solar eclipse glasses and so on, and we can also look it under the tree’s shadow.
