A solar eclipse, visible in Indonesia and parts of North Western Australia, Queensland and the Northern Territory, has started.
NASA says the moon is passing in front of the sun, casting a shadow over much of Southeast Asia.
“People on the nearly 100-mile-wide (160 km) path of totality will experience a total solar eclipse, in which all of the sun’s bright face is blocked by the moon, while people outside this path will see varying degrees of a partial eclipse,” NASA says.
The eclipse is due to start at 12.38pm Sydney time.
