This was taken on the morning of November 14 2012 during a total solar eclipse, only some parts of Queensland and the Northern Territory got to see the full Total Solar Eclipse, unfortunately here in Perth, Western Australia we only got to see a partial eclipse as the sun was rising, the sun was bellow the horizon during the maximum part of the eclipse, and by time the sun came up, the moon was already moving out of the path of the sun.
What I saw here in Perth, Western Australia only lasted about 15 minutes, and the best part was the 5 minutes as the sun came up. Luckily the cloud cleared shortly before sunrise, as we had overcast skies throughout the night.
This photo was taken just as the sun was rising and was the best view we got of the solar eclipse here in Western Australia.
