Coffs Coast didn't miss out on solar eclipse action

WHILE far north Queensland was the hotspot for solar eclipse watchers this morning, the Coffs Coast didn't miss all the action.

Keen photographers were up bright and early to capture the moon's transit over the sun and although it didn't quite turn day back to night, it was nonetheless spectacular.

Scattered cloud didn't stop the phenomenon being viewed and great images were had from Sawtell Headland and areas up and down the coast.

Australia's first total eclipse in ten years has hit the internet in a big way, with thousands of tweets and posts about it.

The Advocate website was also one of the best spots on the coast to observe it safely with live streaming bringing the event into homes without the need for special precautions in case of damage to the eye.
