Top row: sights on the road on the drive to
included kangaroo crossing signs. (Kangaroos appear to cross
everywhere except where these signs are posted.)
Newspaper story announced that the Government will open secret military base
to eclipse viewers - a good location but not our choice. We
continued on to Lyndhurst.
Row2: Still further on the way to the eclipse
we passed Quorn - "Hollywood" of S Australia? A local amateur astronomer
showed us his
homemade solar eclipse telescope; Sign warning you to have well equipped
vehicle and supplies is at the point where the paved road
ends at Lyndhurst, just a few kilometers short of the eclipse center line.
Row 3: Lyndhurst hosted an eclipse festival,
probably the biggest event in the town's history. There were
10,000s of people there. But we went 10 km S of Lyndhurst to an
isolated and less popular point on the Southern
Limit of the total eclipse. In photo on far right Marlene is
checking eclipse progress with special sunglasses.
Row 4: Sun setting shortly after
total eclipse. Lyndhurst was the best location in Australia
to see an eclipsed sun setting in the horizon.
