Total Eclipse Viewing in Sallum Egypt, 2006

Total Eclipse Viewing

The only reason to go to Sallum, which is a small fishing village on the border with Libya was to see the Total Solar Eclipse of March 29, 2006.

The Egyptian government had very kindly set up a camp on the top of the escarpment -- the start of the Libyan plateau -- and around noon we were treated to a cloudless day and a spectacular eclipse.

Also see Egypt.
