Total Solar Eclipse, Cairns, 2012

This morning we hiked up to the ‘Red Arrow’ trail, which is located directly opposite the general aviation side of the Cairns Airport, near the Botanical Gardens. When sitting at the lookout you have a fantastic view out over the ocean to the east and what was to be an amazing event this morning – a full solar eclipse. People came from all over the world to view the moon passing in front of the sun at roughly 6:44 am this morning. I took a picture below to show you a little piece of what we experienced. Just Amazing!!
