Latest Event - Great Sydney Total Solar Eclipse 2028

Start date: Sat 22nd Jul 2028    

Taken in Carbondale IL, USA during the Total Solar Eclipse of 2017
Canon 5D MK3 with Sigma 150-600mm lens and Baader AstroFilm solar filter.

Ok so this might be a little premature 10 years out from the event, but hey – why not get the hype machine rolling early right? There’s a lot of time to prepare and practice or at the very least, scratch a few days off your future calendar to come join us and the rest of Sydney for a total solar eclipse with a “greatest duration” of totality that passes right over the Bintel store in Glebe! Almost 4 glorious minutes of darkness await during totality. To check the map for your predicted time and proximity to totality check NASA’s website here.
