Total solar eclipse from Australia

Eclipse 2012
After more than two years without any total solar eclipses (the last one took place on July 11th, 2010), the Moon’s shadow revisits the Earth’s surface on 13th November 2012. The journey of the shadow begins in Australia, and then moves out to the Pacific Ocean. The maximum of the eclipse, with a duration of 4 minutes and 2 seconds, occurs in the middle of the Pacific Ocean at 22:11 UT, with the Sun at 68° above the horizon. The GLORIA project has organized an expedition to watch and broadcast live the event. See the event page.
