Revel in the wonder of the Solar System


In July 2009, scientist Professor Brian Cox travelled to Varanasi in India to witness the longest total eclipse of the Sun this century.

It forms the centrepiece moment for the BBC's new series Wonders of the Solar System, which explores how the laws of physics carved natural wonders across the solar system.

You can see the first part of Wonders of the Solar System with Professor Brian Cox on BBC Two this Sunday 2100 GMT
