A rare total solar eclipse
will be visible this week, and the moon will fully cover the sun in a spectacular vision that has fascinated people for centuries. Unfortunately, only a small part of the world will see this March 20th event.
The eclipse should be visible from the southern tip of Greenland to the Faroe Islands and Svalbard island group before disappearing near the North Pole.
Thanks to technology, however, if you don't happen to live in Greenland or on one of the islands, you can watch the eclipse as it happens online at the Slooh Community Observatory
website, beginning around 4:30 am, EDT. Space.com
will also air a feed from the observatory, as will the Virtual Telescope Project
