Here’s Where to Watch Tomorrow’s Solar Eclipse

There's a solar eclipse coming tomorrow, and while it may only be visible over Northern Australia and the Pacific, there are a couple of places you can watch it remotely.

The eclipse is supposed to start at 3:35pm EDT tomorrow. The Slooh Space Camera has a live feed from Cairns, Australia that will start at 2:30pm EDT. Folks at Slooh say this dispatch should be particularly stunning, since the event is supposed to begin around sunrise in the area.

You can also watch a stream from Tourism Tropical North Queensland, which will also broadcast from Cairns starting at 2pm EST. And since it's an important reminder to all our friends in Australia catching the moon blotting out the sun in person—don't stare at it directly or you'll go blind. More here.

This is so cool, it's a real shame that I'm nowhere near Australia to enjoy this, if I had limitless money I'd probably immediately fly out so I could see this because it sounds awesome, I guess I'm just going to have to watch the stream instead.
