Total Solar Eclipse 2012

Total Solar Eclipse 2012 infographic

Today (Nov 14th) will be a total eclipse of the Sun, and the Solar Eclipses infographic from turu does a great job with visually explaining eclipses and sharing the statistics from prior eclipses.

The total solar eclipse of 2012 is set to be a spectacular event. Occurring just after sunrise on November 14 (local time), the eclipse will be best viewed from Cairns in Australia. Already a popular tourist destination, the 2012 eclipse is expected to flood the coastal city with thousands of domestic and international visitors.

The infographic provides a definition of a solar eclipse as well as information on the Australia 2012 eclipse. It offers an insight into past solar eclipses, noting duration of totality and effects on local tourism.

With a number of events scheduled such as the Solar Eclipse Marathon and the Eclipse 2012 Festival, Cairns aims to cater to this expected influx of tourists. Renowned for its sunshine, Cairns is expected to be a prime location to view the 2012 eclipse. The next opportunity to view a total eclipse in Australia will be in the year 2028, making this year’s event truly special.

A good design that tells a good story.  In the footer should be a Copyright statement, and the URL to the infographic landing page so readers can find the origial full-size version.

For all the research that went into the durations and locations of prior eclipses, you'd think they author could spot that Zambia is a whole other country, 5ookm north of South Africa.

I hate to poo-poo this graphic but the biggest omission is that misses is to answer the question "why don't eclipses happen monthly". For example: http://starryskies.com/The_sky/events/lunar-2003/moon.orbit.jpg

The infographic provides a meaning of a solar surpass as well as information on the Sydney 2012 surpass. It offers an understanding into past solar eclipses, observing length of totality and effects on local travel and leisure.
