Today's eclipse

This photo is from the site linked below.
Are you looking forward to today's partial eclipse of the sun?

Here in Darwin it should be easy to observe. My friends and I have been concerned that the clouds might obscure our view, or that it might rain and we would see nothing.

Thankfully, it is a lovely sunny day here with just a few clouds. Very light cover.

A local astronomer will be selling special glasses in the Mall and speaking about eclipses. I remember buying those glasses for a similar event when the children were in primary school, and will definitely buy some today.

Here is a link for those who are interested.
