Slooh Observatory Is Webcasting Today’s Rare ‘Ring of Fire’ Eclipse

An anonymous reader quotes Space.com
A solar eclipse and its spectacular “ring of fire” will be visible from the Southern Hemisphere this Sunday morning, but no matter what side of the equator you’re on, you can watch the spectacular event unfold online in a live broadcast from Slooh’s online observatory…beginning at 7 a.m. EST (1200 GMT)… This type of eclipse is called an annular eclipse, meaning that the sun will remain visible as a bright ring around the moon…

Slooh will present the eclipse in live feeds from Chile and other locations. “During the broadcast, Slooh host Gerard Monteux will guide viewers on this journey across multiple continents and thousands of miles,” Slooh said in a statement. “He’ll be joined by a number of guests who will help viewers explore not only the science of eclipses, but also the fascinating legend, myth, and spiritual and emotional expression associated with these most awe-inspiring celestial events.”
