A total solar eclipse will take place on 13-14 November 2012 (UTC),
beginning locally on November 13 west of the International Date Line
over northern Australia, and ending on November 14 east of the date line
off the western South American coast. Its greatest magnitude is 1.0500,
occurring only 12 hours before perigee, with greatest eclipse totality
lasting just over 4 minutes.
A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun,
thereby totally or partially obscuring the image of the Sun for a
viewer on Earth. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent
diameter is larger than the Sun, blocking all direct Sunlight, turning
day into darkness. Totality occurs in a narrow path across the surface
of the Earth, while a partial solar eclipse will be visible over a
region thousands of kilometers wide.
For this eclipse totality will be visible from northern Australia
and the southern Pacific Ocean. The most populous city to experience
totality will be Cairns, which will experience 2 minutes of totality
just an hour after daybreak (06:38 AEST, 20:38 UTC) with the Sun at an
altitude of just 14°. Norfolk Island, a small pacific island east of
Australia, will experience a partial eclipse with a maximum of 98% of
the Sun obscured at 09:37 NFT and an altitude of 42°.
Parts of northern New Zealand will experience a partial eclipse.
Auckland will have 87.0% of the Sun obscured, whereas Wellington,
Christchurch and Dunedin will respectively have 76.4%, 68.9% and 61.5%
of the Sun obscured. Maximum eclipse over New Zealand will occur around
10:30 NZDT (21:30 UTC), with Auckland at 10:28, Wellington at 10:34,
Christchurch at 10:35 and Dunedin at 10:36.
Parts of central Chile, specifically the Los Ríos
and Los Lagos regions from Valdivia (63% obscured) south to Quellón
(54% obscured) will see a partial eclipse with over half the Sun
obscured at sunset, over the coast. Points north up to about Santiago
will see the eclipse begin as the Sun is setting.
When seen from west of the International Date Line
the eclipse will take place on the morning of November 14. Greatest
eclipse, of duration 4 min 2 sec, will occur east of the International
Date Line on November 13, approximately 2000 km east of New Zealand, and
9600 km west of Chile.
In February of 2008, Earth Changes Media made headlines providing evidence
of a connection between a Solar and Lunar Eclipse and catastrophic
events. We displayed well documented evidence showing large earth
changing events did occur within a 14 day window prior to, and 14 days
immediately following an Eclipse.
Will a similar scenario occur
as the result of the coming full solar eclipse? Let's take a look at
history and the scientific evidence of "cycles". Below I will list the
dates of 'full lunar eclipse' from 2001 to 2011.
Although earthquakes are certainly at the top of all emergency managements list,
volcanoes are not far behind. I am most concerned with recent volcanic
events in Northern and Central America which may be progress to full

A magnitude 7.6 earthquake shook the Indian Province of Gujarat. It was
one of the two most deadly earthquakes to strike India in its recorded
history. The death toll was 19,727, number of injured at 166,000, over
600,000 people were left homeless, with 348,000 houses destroyed and an
additional 844,000 damaged.

At least 176 people have died and 521 people were injured after a
magnitude 6.4 earthquake that shook the eastern Turkey's Bingol
province. Several public buildings collapsed in the centre of Bingol
city and its vicinity. The last official report concerning the
consequences of the earthquake in the city indicates about 570 buildings
were collapsed and about 6000 others were damaged.

A strong earthquake measuring 6.8 magnitude struck the coastal region
east of Algiers and the Tell Atlas mountains of Algeria. 2,251 people
died, another 1,200 missing, 10,243 were injured and 200,000 made

A 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit northern Japan, however, there were no
casualties and very few people were injured due to the depth (about 44
miles underground) of the epicenter of the earthquake.

Yellowstone Super Volcano experienced over 400 quakes within three
days. This type of increase in earthquake activity is called a "swarm".
Parts of the caldera were closed to the public with areas of surface
temperatures reaching over 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Some reports were

October 23 2004 - (Japan)
A series of powerful earthquakes the strongest with a magnitude of 6.7
jolted northern Japan, killing at least 30 people and injuring more than
2000 people largely as the result of building collapse. The strongest
earthquakes occurred during a period of several hours with the main
epicenter located near Yamakoshi village, Niigata Prefecture. Thousands
of landslides were triggered by the earthquakes and aftershocks with
much associated damage to roads, agricultural fields, and residential.
