The July 11th, 1991 total solar eclipse was experienced by more people than any other eclipse in history. The narrow shadow path passed over the big island of Hawaii, Baja California, Mazatlan and the most populous city in the world, Mexico City. Over 20 million people in Mexico City alone experienced darkness at high noon as the shadow passed over. After passing Mexico City, the shadow passed over the mysterious Mayan pyramids built to honor the god of the Sun. I journeyed to the southern tip of Baja California and experienced the eclipse under absolutely perfect conditions. My location experienced over 5 minutes and 30 seconds of totality.
