A total eclipse of the sun will take place starting at about 3:35 EST on Tuesday November 13 and is expected to last four minutes. This is set to be the only total eclipse of the sun that will happen in 2012 so it is worthwhile checking out. The last similar total solar eclipse happened on July 11 2010. If you are interested in watching, then the most dramatic view of the eclipse will be in the Earth’s southern hemisphere.
Unfortunately solar eclipses are quite localized, so the eclipse will not be visible in North America, except for online live-streams. Check out the link below for the livestream of the event from the SLOOH Space Camera.
- Wikipedia has a great entry covering the event.
- Also, take a look at the space.com entry about the eclipse.
