Australians gather in northern state to watch solar eclipse

 Australians, including visitors and astronomers gathered in northern Australia to watch Australia' s first full solar eclipse for a decade on Wednesday morning.
About 60,000 excited astronomers and eclipse tourists have converged on the region to watch eclipse.
The eclipse, which happened at around 6:38 a.m. Queensland time on Wednesday, is visible for about two minutes in small parts of the Cape York Peninsula and Northern Territory. For residents across the rest of Australia, a partial eclipse is visible.
Tourism Tropical North Queensland and NASA provided a live stream of the full eclipse, which is expected to garner an audience of millions, with particular interest in North America, Canada and Europe.
This is the first full solar eclipse visible from Australia since 2002 — and that was only visible in the nation's south.
The next solar eclipse to be visible from Australia will be on May next year, but it will only be an annular eclipse.
