Solar Eclipse – ‘Ring of Fire’ 2012 – Live Video Stream
Here are video streams of the ‘Ring of Fire’ Solar Eclipse occurring today around the world.
An annular solar eclipse is when the moon blocks off the sun and leaves a ring of sunlight around the moon’s circumference. It’s pretty spectacular. There are a lot of telescopes tracking the eclipse beginning in Japan and Hong Kong at 5:30 p.m. EDT.
The full solar eclipse can be seen in parts of the western United States, while everyone else will have a partial eclipse. (This isn’t a total eclipse by the way, where the moon obscures the sun completely.)
Make sure to check out the video streams when they go live:
Mt. Fuji, Fujiyama, Japan
Hong Kong Observatory
Area 51, Nevada
