See the Total Solar Eclipse from Turkey LIVE
I wasn't going to post much about the eclispe here since we can't see it from the States, but it occured to me that someone must be planning a live feed of the event...and here it is:
On March 29, 2006, a total solar eclipse will occur when the new moon moves directly between the sun and the earth. The moon’s shadow will fall on the eastern tip of Brazil, speed eastward across the Atlantic, through northern Africa, across the Mediterranean, and into Turkey, where an Exploratorium team will be waiting.
Our crew will transmit a live eclipse Webcast, as well as a telescope-only feed, from a Roman amphitheater in Side, Turkey. Weather permitting, we’ll witness the spectacular moment of totality, when the moon completely blocks the sun, and the sun’s glorious corona (the outer part of the sun's atmosphere) is revealed.
Watch the LIVE Telescope-only Feed
9:30–12:30 UT (Time and Date Help)
This stream is for people who only want to see the eclipse. There is no audio; the video is a mix of four different telescope feeds.
Go to the Eclipse live feed site for more info:
and here is another site streaming video:
Update: Well, the team has now finished all but one live Internet post eclipse presentation that is scheduled for Thursday morning. They are currently resting up for the Big Eclipse Event less than a half a day away. Keep checking the gallery for updated expedition pix and downloadable mpeg's!
Check out MSNBC's list of world wide listing of webcams streaming the eclipse:
