Quote from: from wikipedia

This solar eclipse is the longest total solar eclipse that will occur in the twenty-first century, and will not be surpassed in duration until June 13, 2132.


apparently yes, it will be the longest of the century. (but it won't be visible from here so )

the maximum duration will be 6m39s (i guess that is for the full eclipse at one place. from the start over India to the end over the Pacific will be over 5 hours).
I'm from Argentina, so no eclipse for me this time  :(
