Eight members of the COEP Astronomy Club (along with three members of a local Astronomy group – ‘Akashmitra’) had gone to Rameshwaram, a coastal village in South India to catch the Annular Solar Eclipse of 15th Jan 2010. Rameshwaram was chosen for its proximity to the Central Line of Eclipse (central line of the belt of shadow; places lying on this line have the longest time of eclipse and the maximum phase, with respect to places lying on a line perpendicular to the central line at that point).
In all, the long journey (around 30 hours one way!) was very much worth the 8-10 minutes of annular phase and 3-4 hours of the entire eclipse.
