Tomorrow a total solar eclipse will darken part of the Earth. Unless you’re hanging out in Outer Mongolia, though, you won’t get to see it. Luckily there’s NASA, which will stream a good shot of it from a special website.

Well, there’ll be a partial view in parts of North America, too, but the best views are closer to the Arctic Circle, where nobody really wants to go. With the Olympics in China and record fuel prices, getting to places where the eclipse is total are a little cost-prohibitive.

You’re not supposed to stare at the sun, anyway, as a few dozen people in India just found out.

For those of us who’d rather stay in the toasty confines of a North American summer—and you know, not go blind staring—can view the eclipse from NASA’s website tomorrow.

NASA has even prepared a Google Map showing the "Path of Totality." Can’t help but think that sounds like a scary path, one with Gandalf at the end of it shouting at a fire demon.

    Love your site and newsletters but I’m seriously considering unsubscibing.

    Do you have any idea how frustrating it is to have the page skip down to the comments box when you are half way through reading a story?

    It’s your site so do what you want… just had to get it off my chest..!

      Go with FireFox.  The script doesn’t work in that browser.

    Honestly, I LOVE WebProNews!! Always have!!

    But I HATE IT when I click on one of the headlines and start reading and the whole page jumps down!!
    WHY IS IT THERE??? I’ve never seen another site that uses this.

    It’s aggrevating and rude to your readers.
