Upcoming eclipse inspires travel to Australia

Solar eclipses appeal to tourists who travel to remote places to witness the celestial phenomenon. Australia is expecting 50,000 visitors for a Nov. 14 solar eclipse that will be visible from the Cairns-Port Douglas area in Queensland.
Tourists take photographs at the site of the Giza Pyramids during a partial solar eclipse in 2011 in Egypt. Some travel companies specialize in eclipse tours.
