So it was seen from New Zealand. Maximum eclipse as seen from the far south of NZ. Seeing this required leaving the mainland for Stewart Island, the only part of NZ to fall within the eclipse area. Impossibly small magnitude of 0.24%, low altitude of 10° and impossibly high likelihood of cloud made for a sufficiently daft undertaking 2 people so far are known to have embarked on. All forgotten when the cloud started to break 1h before 1st contact and allowed a good enough view of the entire 10-minute event. Visually observable at 50x
