dated July 2, 1954: Eclipse of the sun

The moon cast a shadow over some two-thirds of the earth's surface on June 30 before the watching eyes of millions in an eclipse of the sun. Thousands of people who crowded the sleepy town of Phalodi in the Rajasthan desert, known only to a few geography students, had a full view of the total eclipse of the sun for 68 seconds. The floating clouds in the sky cleared just as the moon's shadow started darkening the face of the sun at 6-32 p.m., and a few minutes later the sun appeared completely shorn of light and glow.
