Indeed very tiny. Only Victoria ans Tasmania will be in the 'shadow' of the Moon. But a small scope (with filter !) will reveal a tiny gap in the solar limb. It will just miss New Zealand (Invercargill).

Here’s a picture I took of a similar small partial in 2009. This one had an obscuration of 0.063% and eclipse magnitude of 0.031.

Ian Griffin ( Director, Otago Museum ) is flying down to Stewart Island which will get an 8 minute 18% (IIRC) coverage. Fingers crossed for some cloud breaks...

So I was thinking about this today. As I was lucky to experience the eclipse last year in the US that was dubbed the "Great American Eclipse of 2017", maybe this one should be called the "P*ssweak Aussie Eclipse of 2018"?

Just a thought.

Malcolm
