Solar Eclipse 14 November 2012



Early Wednesday morning, a total solar eclipse occurred in part of the Southern Hemisphere when the moon passed briefly between the Earth and the Sun.

The eclipse cast a 95-mile wide shadow over parts of northern Australia and the Indian and Pacific Oceans.
According to the Associated Press, over 50,000 people came to northern Australia to see the celestial event, and live streams of the eclipse delighted skywatchers all over the world.
