Total Solar Eclipse: How To See ItBy: Amanda Crum - November 12, 2012
Total solar eclipses don’t happen very often, so when one comes around, it’s a good idea to try and check it out; they are spectacular things to witness. Unfortunately, they often occur over open areas of ocean or are visible only to very particular regions around the world; the eclipse expected for Tuesday, November 13th, will mostly be visible from northern Australia. So what do the rest of us do? We hit the web.
Luckily for us, there are several sites which will live stream the event, including the Slooh Space Camera, which will broadcast from the Australian city of Queensland–a perfect view for this event. Check out the site to find out what time you’ll be able to view it in your area.
If you’re one of the lucky Australians who will get to see the event in person, don’t forget to make a viewer. A solar eclipse is a beautiful thing to see, but it can damage your eyes if you watch it happen with no protection. There are simple tutorials all over the place for making pinhole cameras; check one below.
