The moon was moving between our little blue marble and the fiery behemoth known as Sol earlier today, but because of where we live (and not the cloudy skies) we didn't see a hint of it. Our only satellite drenched a swath (160km) of the Pacific Ocean with lunar shadow... darkening land in Australia this (Tuesday) afternoon.

Eclipse expert and National Geographic Society grantee Jay Pasachoff, an astronomer at Williams College in Massachusetts told National Geographic:

"The best places on land to see totality is along 62 miles [100 kilometers] of coastline on northeast Australia, overlooking the Great Barrier Reef and the Coral Sea."
