Partial Solar Eclipse October 23rd 2014

There will be a partial solar eclipse later today October 23rd 2014. It will be visible over much of North America. We have looked at eclipses many times in the past, including: 2006, 2008 1,2, 2009, 2010,2012 and 2013.

Several of the sites or KMLs that we have pointed to in the past either no-longer work or do not include this eclipse – probably because it is only a partial eclipse. However, the HeyWhatsThat eclipse page, which uses the Google Earth plugin, still works correctly and will show you the path of today’s eclipse. Be sure to tick ‘penumbra’ near the bottom right. You can also watch the partial eclipse live on Slooh, an online community observatory. For more technical information about the eclipse see the NASA page
