This close-up view of the July 11, 2010, total solar eclipse’s second diamond ring reveals a number of prominences as well as the pinkish layer of the sun’s atmosphere called the chromosphere.

Starting from shortly after dawn Wednesday (Nov. 14, 2012) local time in Australia or 3:35 p.m. EST (2035 GMT) Tuesday there was a total solar eclipse in parts of northern Australia.

The total darkness that happened at the peak of the eclipse lasted just over two minutes.

That special moment is called totality.

Thousands of people watched the  rare phenomenon from boats around the Great Barrier Reef, hot air balloons, the hilltops and beaches.
