Australia and parts of Indonesia had a partial eclipse of the sun on Tuesday, April 29, 2014. Naturally not everyone was able to see it. Still good news for those who weren't able to see it, they can now be viewed in videos online.

Yesterday's annular solar eclipse occurred over a 500-kilometre wide region in Antarctica. It was the first of two solar eclipses and four eclipses total set to happen in 2014.

The very first eclipse for the year was the April 15 total lunar eclipse.

Despite rain and clouds dampened hopes and attempts to view the eclipse from much of southern Australia, residents in Queensland to the east and areas around Perth to the west still pretty much were able to get a fine view when clouds parted long enough.

For the timelapse video of the eclipse courtesy of Proba-2 of the European Space Agency and the Royal Observatory of Belgium, watch the video here.

The next space event being monitored is on May 3 when a 10-metre large asteroid called 2014 HL129 will make a very close approach with the Earth, reaching a minimum distance of less than 300.000 km, which is 0.7 lunar distances.
