A little reminder for the Aussies

Speschly the Queenslanders.
There is a solar eclipse happening this week. First thing in the morning on Wednesday. Only those in Cairns and closeby will get the full effect. I will get a partial eclipse further south and the Kiwis will get a partial version too.


Where is Scratch speaking of Cairns?

Here is a map.



And some more details.

Was pretty good for a partial eclipse... Slight cloud blocked enough of the glare to allow a clearer view of the shadow- pretty cool all up! :-)

He is probably being grumpy in person to some kangaroos and such while prospecting.

This happens here every time there's an eclipse, a meteor shower, etc.
