Travellers heading on a holiday to India this summer may wish to make sure they catch the total solar eclipse.

July 22nd will see the longest complete solar eclipse of the 21st century, lasting for a total of six and a half minutes.

“An eclipse is the one thing that actually lives up to the hype,” said eclipse chaser and self-professed cynic, reported the New York Times.

The event will begin near Surat on the western coastline of India and will pass across the country to Butan towards the north of Bangladesh, according to Eclipse Chasers.

Christina Koukkos, journalist for the New York Times, wrote: “The transformation of reality in a total solar eclipse is indescribable.”

“Spellbound adventurers will be out in force,” she added, going on to say she would not want to miss out on it.

Brits heading on holiday to India may want to be near the coast to witness the event, as there will be less cloud cover than inland, Eclipse Chasers recommended.
