Heavenly event on calendar

THERE will be a total eclipse along a narrow path through northern Queensland on November 14 but Southern Downs residents will be able to witness the sun partially eclipsed.

In Warwick and Stanthorpe the eclipse will be around 5.58am, just about an hour after sunrise.

The sun will be still low in the sky, only about 13 degrees above horizon.

Around 6.55am, the maximum eclipse will occur and roughly 80 per cent of the sun will be blocked by the moon.

The eclipse will end about 8am.

The next total eclipse to be seen in this region will occur on July 13, 2037.

Never look directly at the Sun or you will suffer serious damage to your eyesight.

To view the eclipse safely, use eclipse glasses or look through a telescope or binoculars fitted with a solar filter.
