An estimated 1,000 people, including students, researchers and photographers gathered at the Jeju Starlight World Park and Planetarium July 22 to witness the longest partial solar eclipse of the twenty-first century.

The rare event started at 9:31 a.m. and was seen on Jeju with the sun shielded 92.4 percent – a near total eclipse. Some Pacific Asian regions got a full eclipse. This solar eclipse had the longest duration in 120 years and in some parts of Asia it lasted as long as 6 minutes and 39 seconds. The path of the eclipse was reported live through the Korean Internet portal sites Naver and Daum.
