The early Morning on Gulf of Khambhat will start a morning without sunrise, follow to parts of Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, and Myanmar, Then proceed to China, where Shanghai & Hangzhou alone will experience this "Dark Sun". After leaving mainland Asia, the path crosses Japan's Ryukyu Islands and curves southeast through the Pacific Ocean where the maximum duration of totality reaches 6 min 39 s. A partial eclipse is seen within the much broader path of the Moon's penumbral shadow, which includes most of eastern Asia, Indonesia, and the Pacific Ocean. (Link* Sunearthday)

On July 22nd, Earth happens to be near its farthest point from the sun. A small sun means the Moon can cover it longer. At the same time, the Moon will be near its closest point to Earth. A large Moon covers the sun longer, lengthening the eclipse even more (Link* Science@NASA)

According to UDM Portal, there are about 3%-``18% of the eclipse will be seen by the Malaysia Citizen from the main city in the figure aboved. Universiti Darul Iman Malaysia (UDM) has organized the activity for this Total eclipse at :
