Get the best view of today eclipse from Madras, but not the Indian ‘Madras’!

Today US will witness the best solar eclipse that has happened in the last 99 years. Millions of glasses and telescopes are ready all round the world to witness the sight of a lifetime. Luckily people of Madras would get the best view of the eclipse! Hold on, Sorry folks! Madras as in not the one in India but Oregon, from where the Science Channel in the US will broadcast its live coverage.

Campers have been gathering at the Madras Municipal Airport for Monday’s eclipse. On Saturday, the Federal Aviation Administration said a small plane was approaching the airport when it crashed near where people were gathering to view the solar eclipse.

About 200,000 people are expected in the Madras area that’s considered a prime viewing spot as the moon completely blots out the sun.
