Australia, a country cut off from the rest of the world. With unique flora & fauna and wild unknown nature. Vast areas of deserts, rainforests, surrounded by large oceans full of life, from huge whales, sharks and crocodiles to marine tropical fish that inhabit the largest coral reef in the world. In this country was meant to find ourselves in the hunt for Shadow of the Moon. It was mid-July when 2-3 friends syzitagame chances to meet there and without kalokatalavoume within 3 months a small group of 7 people found the tickets in hand to begin the long journey towards the path of shadow.Cairns North Queensland 12/11/2012. After 5 days in the beautiful city of Sydney arrived in the eclipse. The moisture, stray clouds and adjacent shower - drizzle - it was the main feature of the climate of the region. The weather was unsettled and unusual for its own data but every ten minutes might have been different. From sunshine to rain and drizzle in the sunshine. Everyone had begun to realize that we would have a more adventurous eclipse.

Next day one of the same, cloudy and rain alternating with brief periods of sunshine. In the afternoon we threw a last look at the latest forecast. The cloud cover was evident in all possible observation points, the chance to see the eclipse was no longer a matter of luck. Still pondering the best tips we realized that there was a hole in a more sparse rain between port Douglass and Palm cove and we decided to go to Oak beach, which was one of our initial choices, as it was in the middle of the path with maximum duration of totality (2 minutes 5 seconds).We started around 12:30 am, the road was empty and as we neared the observation point over and saw heaven open sections in the east. Our hopes anapterothikan. When we got to the beach was already full of ecliptic friends from around the world. After we did a reconnaissance ride we set up the tripod and we and our cameras. Inside all is not lost the opportunity to capture stray through the clouds some southern constellations. Basically it was just the second and our last contact with a southern sky and did not make us any good nights throughout the voyage. As dawn clouds thicken thinning instead. By the time the sun rose there was an opening down and saw him up until he hid in the dense clouds, losing the first contact. For a few moments we saw the partial phase and all parakalagame a hole for the time of totality. The time passed without understanding a few seconds before the second contact, the Sun emerged on a narrow strip cloudless. I thought I would see it and immediately after a shiny diamond ring appeared. Cheers sounded just appeared on the majestic crown. The sight was eerie and not described in words. The low position of the Sun at 15 degrees, the ocean, the beach and the people who had gathered to observe the phenomenon made the unique spectacle. Fortunately John and Dimitri immortalized the landscape with their excellent shots and Nick with the recorded video. After successfully completing the third total eclipse what I have to say to those who ask me, oh well since you already have two different you will see again, one I have to say. Each eclipse was unique and completely different. A total solar eclipse not only see, but to experience it live!
