The first total solar eclipse of the 21st century took place on 21 June 2001.
Over 300 million people in Europe and Asia witnessed the last total solar eclipse of the century. The only place to experience the total eclipse was Cornwall in South-West England, where they witnessed a full blackout of the sun.
Thousands of people from all over the world are ready to pack their bags and head to Australia, to witness one of the world's greatest phenomenons.
Some of these people, such as me, will be heading there, not only for the total solar eclipse but also for the Eclipse 2012. On every total solar eclipse, the Eclipse Festival is held to celebrate this event. Wherever in the world this phenomenon is visible, is where you can be sure to find Eclipse, one of the biggest music events in the world.
Held in Cairns, in November of this year, the event will go for 7 days and will definitely be a lifetime experience.
Featuring some of the best producers, DJs and artists around the globe, covering music styles such as trance, dub, breaks, house, techno, roots and more.
