(FILES) In this multiple exposure image

In this multiple exposure image taken on July 22, 2009 shows the various stages of the total solar eclipse in Baihata village, 30 kms from Guwahati, the capital city of the northeastern state of Assam. Eclipse junkies are set for a thrill on July 11, 2010 when, along an 11,000-kilometre (6,800-mile) track, the Sun will be covered by the Moon, its life-giving light replaced by a halo of gold in a sky of indigo. Slicing across the South Pacific, the eclipse will notably darken Easter Island, home of the giant moai statues, the silent witnesses of an enigmatic society that thrived but then foundered in war, famine and cannibalism.
