  • North Cape: 10.21am, 91%
  • Whangarei: 10.25am, 89%
  • Auckland: 10.27am, 87%
  • Tauranga: 10.30am, 86%
  • Hamilton: 10.29, 85%
  • Wellington: 10.34am, 76%

Above and below: live feeds from Cains, where the eclipse is underway. The UStream feed is co-sponsored by the Astronomical Association of Queensland, NASA and several other partners.

Auckland's Stardome Observatory has frequently refreshed eclipse images here: www.slipstream.co.nz/eclipse.

Staring directly at the sun can cause eye damage. View the eclipse through solar glasses, or point your digital camera or camera phone at it, then watch your captured footage.
