“The eclipse will cast its 150-kilometer (95-mile) wide shadow starting at dawn in Australia’s Northern Territory and then cross the northeast tip of the country before swooping east across the South Pacific, where no islands are in its direct path,” reports the Associated Press.

NASA has been covering this spectacle with a live feed from Australia via USTREAM. The images above are screen grabs.
