Eclipse Infographic from Space.com

The only total eclipse for 2012

The moon will block the sun Tuesday in a total solar eclipse, but only for spectators in parts of Australia and in the southern Pacific Ocean. For the rest of us, several webcasts will be available to remotely watch the celestial alignment of the sun and moon.

The only total solar eclipse of 2012 will begin Tuesday (Nov. 13) at 3:35 p.m. EST (2035 GMT), though it will be early Wednesday morning (Nov. 14) for observers watching the event in Australia.

The path of totality is about 108 miles (174 kilometers) wide and 9,000 miles (14,500 km) long, and covers a three-hour period. Much of the solar eclipse’s path is over the open Pacific Ocean, making it difficult to observe. [Video: Watch Path of Nov. 13-14 Total Solar Eclipse]

In the fall of 1999, I was ordained as a metaphysical minister in the Order of Melchizedek, ordained by Reverend Dan Chesbro and became a member of the Sanctuary of the Beloved (New York). I studied further under Reverend Brown at the United Metaphysical Churches of America in Roanoke, Virginia, which had its origins in the Spiritualist Movement. I am also a Master Teacher of Sekhem Seichim Reiki with over eleven years of experience practicing and teaching Reiki. I have also given messages and ‘sermons’ at Arlington Metaphysical Chapel (Virginia), where I led adult study classes on a variety of esoteric topics. My online group, One with Spirit Meta-Journal Forum, has been going strong since early 2002. I'm also known for my Psychic Portraits, art from beyond the physical.
