Solar Eclipse during April 2014

A solar eclipse will take place during the afternoon of Tuesday 29 April 2014, viewable across Australia and parts of Antarctica, Indonesia and the Indian Ocean. In Australia the eclipse will be visible throughout the afternoon as the moon’s shadow races across the country from West to East Coast. Most observers will experience a rather rare and memorable conclusion to this celestial event with the sun being eclipsed during sunset! Most of Australia will experience this spectacular partial solar eclipse viewable across the country from Perth to Sydney and all places in between. The April 2014 eclipse marks the end to a very active cycle of solar eclipse viewing opportunities in Australia. For most regions, this will be the largest magnitude eclipse observable until 2028 – so you might not want to miss this one!….
