Two weeks ago at full Moon there was a total eclipse of the Moon, while this afternoon at new Moon we have a partial eclipse of the Sun. From most places in Australia the eclipse ends with the setting of the Sun still in eclipse. Take care and do not look at the Sun directly. Full details on the Astronomical Society of Australia’s website.
Sydney Observatory is holding an event for safe viewing of the eclipse plus providing live stream video, clouds permitting.
