Where to See the Annular Solar Eclipse Online

If you're not in the path of this weekend's annular solar eclipse, bookmark this page for some online viewing options.

This weekend will offer a view of the “ring of fire” eclipse, or at least a partial eclipse of the Sun, to some of Asia and much of the U.S. The rest of the world (including U.S.'s Eastern seaboard) isn't so lucky, but don't worry: there are plenty of places where you can view this spectacular event online.

    Sommers-Bausch Observatory, University of Coilorado in Boulder, will be putting two live streaming elescope views of the partial solar eclipse.

    The first will be of the chromosphere (hydrogen-alpha: :)http://cosmos.colorado.edu/sbo/public/live.chromosphere.html
    or directly from Ustream at
    THe other will be of the photosphere (white light):

    or directly from Ustream at

    At Boulder, first contact occurs at 6:22 MDT. We expect to lose the chromosphere view around 7:18, about 12 minutes before maximum eclipse here (86%). The photosphere camera should be able to follow until sunset over the foothills around 7:45.
