After nearly 1,300 years of anticipation, Australians are set to witness a rare total solar eclipse, which has been attracting thousands of astro-enthusiasts from across the world.


Over 60,000 visitors are expected to witness on Wednesday the perfect alignment of the sun, moon and earth with the backdrop of the Great Barrier Reef, which is expected to run for a little over two minutes.

The phenomenon will mainly take place over the vast South Pacific and, therefore, astro-enthusiasts from across the world are flocking to northern Australia.

The eclipse will start at sunrise in the Northern Territory east of Darwin and will pass across Australia's top eastern cape before heading out over the South Pacific towards the north of New Zealand.

At 2.05 am IST on Wednesday, the moon will begin to cross in front of the sun and will gradually cover it completely. The phenomenon is expected to run for two minutes and five seconds.

While northern Australia will witness total eclipse, a partial eclipse will be visible in eastern Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, the extreme eastern part of Indonesia, Polynesia, part of Antarctica and the southern part of Chile and Argentina.
