The date: November 14 in Australia (November 13 if we're talking GMT time)
The approximate time: The eclipse will begin around 19:45 GMT (05:45 in Cairns), reaching its peak around 20:39 GMT (06:45 in Cairns). Yes, it's early but imagine a dark dawncool!
Type of eclipse: Total solar eclipse. There will be two full minutes of darkness at the apex of the eclipse when the moon is nice and centered between the Earth and the Sun. All in all, the event should last about two hours including partial eclipse time.
The best places for viewing it: Cairns, Australia will be the hotspot for scoping out the total solar eclipse. If you're cool with a partial eclipse, then you can also hang out in Darwin or anywhere in Queensland, but it won't be nearly as major.
