Watch The Rare Solar Eclipse Live!

A total solar eclipse begins today at 3:35 p.m. EST. The rare phenomenon — which won’t happen again until 2015 — will only be visible to a sliver of northeast Australia, where it will be 6.35 a.m. on Nov. 14 local time.  

The path of the total eclipse covers 9,000 miles over a 3-hour period, mostly over the open ocean. Meaning unless you’re in boat, you’ll have to rely on the Internet to view the event.  

Fortunately, UStream is giving the rest of the world a front row seat to the total eclipse with live broadcasts from different parts of Australia. We’ve embedded the live feeds below. 


If you snap pictures of the total eclipse, send them to [email protected] and we’ll share them.
