In case you didn’t know, a total solar eclipse is going to take place on the 13th of November (today or tomorrow, depending on there you are).
The eclipse will be total from Northern Australia to the small Chilean Juan Fernández Islands infront of the southern Pacific Ocean coast where totality will end. However, it will be a partial solar eclipse for almost everybody from the Southern Hemisphere. Auckland will have 87.0% of the sun obscured, whereas Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin will respectively have 76.4%, 68.9% and 61.5% of the sun obscured.
We hope you’ll enjoy it, and if you happen to take any pictures, be sure to send it to us and we’ll publish them right away!
