Some cloudless patches here, but a huge thick band right where the sun needs to come up! Fingers crossed it moves a little!

Well done all... here's hoping all clouds move for you.

I'm up and checked one of my little home made cameras (pin hole style) and it has commenced. You are right Trav the light has just dimmed. You may even feel a temperature drop shortly if not already. Birds may even go a little silent as it progresses. My local birds a singing like crazy but that should stop shortly.

The Maningrida webcam is in the path of this Eclipse - a thin deck of high cloud there this morning but it might not make much difference? None the less the capture rate of the camera has been maxed out - a photo ever 15-20 seconds at the moment I think

Pretty cool hey - I would have loved to have been up there to see totality.

From Brisbane 84 per cent partial eclipse was experienced at 6:54am. We don't get as good a view frown


Edit - birds were only silent for a little while not sure if I was imagining it smile

Had close to 80% totality here in Toowoomba, did a 'pinhole camera' camera with the kids and a couple of other things I read on the net (looking at the shadows from trees, making 'pin hols' with your hands) They loved it, and it makes me want to see a total one! 2037 for Toowoomba (if we're even here!)

I love the photos PDM and and Things. They are great thanks for sharing.

I remember seeing a partial solar eclipse when I was young and just loved the science of looking through a pin hole camera to view it. I think that was many a reason to cement my love of the Sun.
