Spectacular solar eclipses

In this photo released by Tourism Queensland, people gather on a beach at Palm Cove in Queensland state, Australia, to watch and photograph a total solar eclipse Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2012. Starting just after dawn, the eclipse cast its 150-kilometer (95-mile) shadow in Australia's Northern Territory, crossed the northeast tip of the country and was swooping east across the South Pacific, where no islands are in its direct path.
