Foreigners on their way to Taregna village in Bihar on Tuesday to witness the total solar eclipse, the longest in the 21st century. Taregna, about 30 km south of Patna, where astronomer-mathematician Aryabhatta (476-550 AD) had set up a camp to study the movement of stars, has been adjudged the best place to view the celestial phenomenon by the NASA.
