This weekend will offer a view of the “ring of fire” eclipse, or at least a partial eclipse of the Sun, to some of Asia and much of the U.S. The rest of the world (including U.S.'s Eastern seaboard) isn't so lucky, but don't worry: there are plenty of places where you can view this spectacular event online.
- See live coverage of the eclipse from the SLOOH Space Camera.
- Amateur astronomer Scotty Degenhardt will broadcast live from Area 51 in Nevada.
- Panasonic will broadcast live from the top of Mt. Fuji after the broadcast crew, engineers, and mountain guides scale the ice-cold summit.

- Live from Boulder, CO, a hydrogen-alpha view of the Sun:
Since hydrogen-alpha shows us the Sun's chromosphere, you'll be able to see stringy filaments cross the Sun and prominences at its edge. Coverage will last until 7:18pm (Boulder time), 12 minutes before the fullest eclipse.
Also from Boulder, CO, the white-light view of the Sun's visible surface, visible until sunset around 7:45pm:
- From Arizona, Jerry W. at Night Skies Network writes; "Please feel free to check us out on Sunday at approx. 5 p.m. Mountain Standard Time [0:00 UT]. I myself will be broadcasting from Channel name Cosmicviewsphxaz. Enjoy the view!"
- Watch University of North Dakota's Sun Earth Moon Systems (SEMS) live broadcast from Redding, CA.
