While researching for a short story, I discovered there will be a solar eclipse visible from Auckland quite soon.
14th November 9.18am it begins. It is only considered a partial, but it will cover a considerable amount of the sun.

Local times for eclipse in Auckland on Wednesday 14th November 2012
I created a facebook event so that I wouldn’t forget. If you want don’t want to miss it (sitting inside or sleeping in) you might want to join the event on facebook to remind you.
