 Total Solar Eclipse of 2012 November 14
 in Australia

The point of greatest eclipse (totality phase during 4 min 2 sec) lies in the middle of the Pacific Ocean south of French Polynesia. A couple of cruise ships will in the vicinity, but they’ll get only a little more than three minutes of totality; one TSE flight will get a bit more. To observe the 2012 November 13 total solar eclipse, November 14 one hour after sunrise in Australia, I went to Trinity Beach, north of Cairns in Australia, where I joined my friends of the IAP (Institut d’Astrophysique de Paris), the MSFC (NASA Marshall Space Flight Center) and the IfA (Institute for Astronomy, University of Hawaii) but also the team of Miloslav Druckmüller. A scientific symposium was held in Palm Cove from November 12 to 16.

You can use this solar eclipse calculator to compute the local circumstances of the eclipse, and the solar eclipse timer notifies the beginning of the various events. A time exposure calculator is there to help you choose your camera settings.
