Solar eclipse due November 14th

Australia gets the best action until Lunar Eclipse hits USA Nov 30th

Security for virtualized datacentres

November will be a month of eclipses for Reg readers in The New World.

The darkness kicks off on November 14th, when the moon will pass between the Sun and Earth to create a Solar Eclipse that will be apparent to viewers in the Australian city of Cairns, which has helpfully erected a web page to inform tourists about the event.

The cosmic event will kick off around dawn, and the cone of shadow will pass over largely-uninhabited parts of the Pacific Ocean for a few hours. NASA has published a grainy GIF of the eclipse's path event here.

A couple of weeks later, on November 28th, Earth's shadow will pass across the face of the moon, creating a penumbral eclipse. NASA says residents of Western Canada, the USA and East Asia will have the chance to see 'a dusky shading in the northern half of the Moon'.

The November 28 event is one of 145 in a 'Saros', a cycle of eclipses lasting 1262 years.

European readers jealous of all this eclipse action need not fret: there's a partial eclipse due in London in March 2015, according to this eclipse calculator. ®
