About this Article
Shortly after dawn on Wednesday, Nov. 14, the temperature will drop slightly in northern Australia and the sky will grow darker as the moon begins to pass in front of the sun. Weather permitting, travelers will see a black disk with the sun's glowing corona stretching beyond it. "Totality" — the darkness resulting from a total eclipse of the sun — will last just over two minutes. More than 50,000 tourists are expected to travel to Australia to see the eclipse.
