Australian History

Saturday, October 23, 1976. :   Much of southern Australia experiences a total solar eclipse.

     A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, casting its shadow over the Earth. On 23 October 1976, Australia was right in the path of a total solar eclipse, which tracked across the southern half of the continent. The track passed very close to the capital cities of Adelaide, and Sydney. It is rare for a solar eclipse to pass over a populous city, but Melbourne, second-largest city in Australia, was directly in the totality path.

Thought For Today
Enthusiasm without knowledge is not good; impatience will get you into trouble.
Proverbs 19:2 (c) GNB
It is better to err on the side of caution in major decisions. Why jeopardise your life, finances or family by rushing into things.
