Solar Eclipse in August 2017 ….
HARD TO ECLIPSE: Once-in-a-century spectacle is looming
It’s the greatest event in the sky for more than 100 years – large parts of the world will be completely in the dark during the day tomorrow.
It’s the greatest event in the sky for more than 100 years – large parts of the world will be completely in the dark during the day tomorrow. WILL WE SEE IT IN AUSTRALIA? – NO
Australia will not get to see the total eclipse and Monash University Associate Professor and Astronomer Michael Brown said even if you went outside to look at the moon in the early hours of Tuesday, you’ll see absolutely nothing.
“If it wasn’t for the internet we’d be none the wiser,” he said.
The moon’s shadow will barely reach us in Australia because the southern hemisphere will be far away from it when it lines up with the sun and earth.
It is expected to be the most observed, most studied and most photographed eclipse ever.
But Australians should not complain. We were treated to a total solar eclipse in 2012, visible from Cairns and Port Douglas in Queensland.
Australia will experience another total solar eclipse in 2028. It is expected to last for three minutes.
