Skywatchers in the Australian Outback were among the lucky few to witness a solar eclipse on Friday as the moon glided between the Earth and the sun, blocking everything but a dazzling ring of light. The eclipse lasted between three and six minutes, depending on its location, and blacked out around 95 percent of the sun at its peak near Tennant Creek. MORE INFO & PHOTOS:http://on.rt.com/ownzq5
