Solar Eclipse Tonight at 8:00pm

Tonight’s solar eclipse won’t be visible from Hawaii, but you can watch (the partial eclipse from Australia) online. I love the internet!! Here are the details from the Associated Press.
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — Earthlings get their first solar eclipse of the year Tuesday (Monday in Hawaii). But you have to be well south of the equator to see it.

The solar eclipse will be visible to skygazers in Antarctica, Australia, and the southern Indian Ocean about 0600 GMT (8 p.m. HST TONIGHT). It’s one of two solar eclipses in 2014, when the moon lines up between Earth and the sun. This one is a rare type of annular eclipse, meaning the sun will appear as a ring around the moon.

The best view of this brief ring of fire will be in the Antarctic in an uninhabited area.
