FRIDAY THE 13TH SOLAR ECLIPSE
If you live in Tasmania, this Friday the 13th is your lucky day. The new Moon will pass in front of the sun, off center, taking a 10% bite out of the solar disk.
The partial eclipse will be visible--just barely--from the southern edge of Australia (2%) to the northern coast of Antarctica (33%). Hobart, Tasmania, arguably has the best combination of population + coverage.
