The next Surya Grahan is on July 11, 2010. But this is not visible in India and major parts of the world .
Tourists and inhabitants on Easter Island (Rapa Nui or Isla de Pascua) and other small islands in the southern Pacific Ocean, as well as in southern Argentina and Chile in South America, will have the chance to witness this eclipse.
Now for those of you believe in astrology, there is a ‘punya kala’ when the Surya Grahan is visible. And people observe fasting during this period. If the Grahan is not visible in the particular region, there is no ‘punya kala’ and there are no restrictions.
There is no restriction in moving around if there is no Surya Grahan in your region.
The mantra that is chanted during Surya Grahan by pregnant women is the Santana Gopala Mantra.
This eclipse occurs when moon transits gemini sign (according to vedic astrology) and due to this people born under gemini ascendant and moon sign will have some health problems within 3-6 months after the eclipse if they happened to live in countries where eclipse is visible.
