It was chipped off in the Siberia eastern part by Finland of 1,990.7.22 before one saros.

It is the turning point of 20 years after starting total eclipse of the sun observation this time.

I planned a total eclipse of the sun observation tour only after I served as it. I asked the Eurasia tourist bureau for Enforcement of the tour this time. When it says why you chose this travel agency, it is an opportunity that the airplane of the return is the same by chance and I am adjoining and exchanged information with the tour visitor of the Eurasia tourist bureau in the Libya total eclipse of the sun of the year before last in various ways.

Right map is a map containing the zone of totality. The first observation was scheduled to go to where three Santanghu stay. While the e-mail exchange with a representative, however, "If there is no accommodation for three Santanghu, we have proposed stay in a tent. In this case, set up the tent, even if no problems taking place near the observing site to the idea of a good site and waiting to receive from the day before I or we. "and replied that I now consider to be in tents.

But it would be found later, Santanghu had only three foreign military accommodation is no accommodation seems. The city's population is about 1,000, are shared at this invitation-only bed room toilet. Kiyoshi Kiyoshi is not very inviting place, because you have no hot water, and it seems I can not stand is how the level of Isuzu in Japan.

If polarized east will land in the Arctic observed in real time from where compass shifted eastward.
