As I type, a full solar eclipse is occurring several thousand kilometres north of me over Cairns in Far North Queensland.

Here are images being beamed on television in Sydney.

In twenty four minutes time, the eclipse (partial) will occur over Sydney with 68% of the sun covered by the moon's shadow. Unfortunately there is heavy cloud cover in Sydney at the moment so the event is unlikely to be visible to us.


  1. Hi Victor,

    I was there and it was fantastic.
    We went out on the reef to view it.
    Well worth the trip.

  2. Lucky you, disco. I hope your eyes were well protected.
