Stargazers in parts of Australia will get to witness a dramatic "ring of fire" solar eclipse later today. For anyone else who isn't hanging out down under, SLOOH, a robotic telescope service, will have a livestream of the eclipse here.
An annular solar eclipse happens when the Moon passes in front of the sun but doesn't cover it completely, leaving a bright solar ring around the black Moon. Hence the nickname "ring of fire."
The solar eclipse will be visible to folks in western Australia and some southern islands in the Pacific. About 95 percent of the sun will be covered, so if you are able to see it in real life, remember that it's probably not worth blindness--maybe don't look it directly in the eye.
We drove from Tacoma, WA to just west of Redding, CA last May to watch last year's annular eclipse.... shot some video and lots of pics of it, was the coolest eclipse I've seen yet. I'm excited and waiting for 2017 when our first of two total solar eclipses happen... the 2nd is in 2024.
