Total Eclipse 2012 in Cairns Photos
The eclipse was amazing, truly beyond anything I had imagined. This was the first total eclipse I have ever seen. The whole event is magnificent. The anticipation, the feeling of good will from everyone around that all show up for the same thing. The drop in temperature and the dimming of the light. And then the brilliance of the corona against the sudden darkness. We will never forget it! It’s easy to see how someone can become an eclipse chaser.
