Total solar eclipse Cairns Nov. 2012

Jump to last reply

Having an avid interest in astronomy, I have always wanted to witness the spectacle of a total solar eclipse. Surfing the net, I see a total solar eclipse will cross Cape York (including Cairns) on Nov. 13, 2012. It will occur just after sunrise that day.

My question is...given the time of day, and the the time of year, what are the chances the sun will actually be visible, i.e., not being cloudy? If the prospects are good, I'll start planning now!

Thanks, Ralph
