Indonesia's three minutes of darkness 印度尼西亚见证三分钟日全食
'Fifth Beatle' Sir George Martin dies “第五位披头士”乔治·马丁爵士去世
Millions of people across parts of Asia and the Pacific have been experiencing a rare total solar eclipse. The moon passed directly in front of the sun, blocking direct sunlight, creating a night-time effect. For a time the darkness was total across a strip 150km wide.
The influential British record producer Sir George Martin, often called the 'fifth Beatle', has died at the age of 90. The news was made public in a message posted on social media by Beatles drummer Ringo Starr. Sir George produced most of The Beatles' hit singles and his accomplishments extended beyond the famous four-piece with which he was so closely associated.
