Live from the Ningaloo Coast

Timeanddate’s mobile observatory traveled all the way from Norway to the Ningaloo Coast in Western Australia to capture live footage of the April 20, 2023 solar eclipse for viewers around the world, in collaboration with Perth Observatory.

Here’s how the eclipse totality looked:

An Annular-Total Solar Eclipse

A hybrid solar eclipse looks like a total eclipse in some areas along the eclipse path, and like an annular eclipse in others—and it’s all due to Earth’s curvature.

The total phases of today’s eclipse were only visible in parts of Australia, East Timor, and Indonesia.
