Total Eclipse 14 November 2012

by Phill Edwards & Steve Crawford

This was the 45th eclipse of Saros 133.

Totality lasted 2 minutes 4 seconds from our viewpoint.

At third contact we were at 17.19753° 147.1035°E

This was a beautiful eclipse viewed from the Dawn Princess! The corona was quite symmetrical and compact.
