Spectacular solar eclipses

The moon begins to cross in front of the sun during a partial solar eclipse in Sydney, Friday, May 10, 2013. At remote outposts across Australia, scientists and spectators gathered to watch as the eclipse castes its approximately 200-kilometer-wide (120-mile-wide) shadow at dawn over Western Australia, before moving east through the Northern Territory and the top of Queensland state.(AP Photo/Rick Rycroft)
