Solar eclipse in Australia

I just saw a story about a solar eclipse in Australia. Did any of our community members see it?

Rare solar eclipse wows viewers – and scares birds – in Australia.

It was really only a full eclipse in WA.
About 10% light reduction where we live on the East Coast, and yesterday was cloud and rain.


Far north of where I live (WA) was the only place it was near total : Exmouth… i.e. about 2000 km north…

I noticed a certain “filter” of the sunlight for the duration, i.e. the sky seemed a different blue, the shadows cast had a different tint… It think somehow I’m more sensitive to subtle changes in blue, being red-green colour-blind…
