There’s a solar eclipse next month. If you’re reading my blog, chances are you aren’t in a good position to see it though – it’ll be visible mostly across the Pacific, though a swath of northern Australia gets a great view.
It might be too late (or too expensive) for you to pack you bags and head down under, but it’s not too late to see the eclipse. Tropical North Queensland Tourism is sponsoring a webcast of the eclipse. Visit the website above for information on the webcast.
If you want more information about this eclipse, visit the Sun-Earth Day eclipse 2012 website, http://venustransit.nasa.gov/2012eclipse/. There are lots of resources there, for educators, outreach specialists, and just for fun. (I’ll warn you though, “The Sun Song” is very sticky.)
