    Auckland will experience an 87-per-cent eclipse beginning at 9.18am, reaching maximum coverage at 10.28am, and ending at 11.44am.

    A fuller eclipse will be visible in Northland, with the best view - 89.4 percent - at Cape Reinga.

    Mainly fine weather is predicted for northern regions tomorrow morning, however showers were expected to develop in western parts of the island between Waikato and Manawatu. High cloud was expected in the east of the North Island, MetService forecaster Philippa Murdoch said.

    In Wellington and the lower North Island, the partial eclipse is due to begin about 9.25am and end at 11.47am, with the moon covering the maximum of 76 per cent of the sun at 10.34am.

    Anyone planning on turning into anything supernatural during this time? Or gaining Super Powers (or losing them for that matter)?

    Doesn't look too bad in the North, about a 1/4 covered.

    The sky is darkened with the wings of chickens coming home to roost for (Choose one)

    * The Labour Party
    * The Moderators
    * (Insert your favourite entity)
    * Moi!

    Its quite dark and the multitude of birds we have around here seem to have gone back to bed here in Whangarei (Ngunguru). The sun looks like a new moon sort of shape. Just a sliver left. WE'RE DOOMED... DOOOOOMED I tell you!!

    Still managed to see it on Glynnbrooke, noddy. At a friend's recommendation stared through a ps2 platinum game with sunnies on. Looked neat.
