Paradox 2 - Total solar eclipse
According to the pundits, the longest a total solar eclipse can last is 7 minutes and 29 seconds (for example, see http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_long_does_a_total_phase_of_a_total_solar_eclipse_last). However, I have seen a total solar eclipse which lasted more than 9 minutes. What is the explanation? (Q10 for the first correct answer).

You were in a plane flying along the path of totality. I have seen advertisements for such flights. I am making the usual assumptions - this is an eclipse of our sun by our moon on our planet.

Is it possible that you were in satellite that's orbiting earth moving in the same directions as the eclipse path?

Was the solar eclipse that you saw exactly 9 minutes or was it much more?
