Today (March 8) the moon will pass in front of the sun, causing the first and only total solar eclipse of 2016. For skywatchers around the world, here’s how to see the eclipse and what to expect. The eclipse will be visible across Indonesia, from the islands of Sumatra, Borneo, Sulawesi and Halmahera. A partial eclipse will be visible over southern and eastern Asia, northern and western Australia, and Hawaii.
Skywatchers in the rest of the world can watch the eclipse live in a webcast hosted by the Slooh Community Observatory. Slooh will broadcast views of the eclipse from Indonesia, along with “live feeds from several other locations along the eclipse path,” said the observatory’s website. NASA will broadcast a webcast of the eclipse as well, starting at 8 p.m. EST (0100 GMT on Wednesday, March 9) on NASA TV. READ MORE
