excellent! nice pictures.

I remember 1999 solar eclipse. you can see it getting dark slowly, but suddenly you feel really cold like in a fridge.

That's cool.

I saw a news headline which said that this was the longest eclipse of the century. Already? Great, now there's nothing to look forward to.

Cool! You're lucky to have seen it... it was too cloudy here to see anything, but it was still fun to see how dark it got. Where in Hubei do you live?

Yeah, it's been a while! This site is usually blocked on my home connection, and don't always have time when I'm at work. You're lucky the eclipse didn't happen when you were away from home! Haven't been to Hubei yet... maybe someday soon

really?how is that?

I always have the access to BF

Welcome to Hubei!Three Gorges,Jingzhou Ancient City,and of course Wuhan are good places to visit,and the newly operated CRH train D3006/7 can bring you from Shanghai to Wuhan in just 5 hours in a quite reasonable price~~~
