Total solar eclipse, Australia to South America – an annotated graphic

Advanced warning for our Antipodean friends in northern Australia not to panic later today when the sky goes dark and the sun seems to disappear: it’s just a total solar eclipse.

As it happens, the best view of it will be in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, so anyone bobbing about in a boat east of New Zealand and directly above Antarctica will enjoy the spectacle for the longest time, but lots of people in countries between NZ and South America will get the chance to see at least a partial eclipse. We love an eclipse here at E&T. When the birds fall silent because they think it’s night time: eerie.
