July 11, 2010 Total Solar Eclipse Live Webcast

The path of totality will touch the South Pacific Ocean northeast of New Zealand at 18:15 UT (2:15 am Philippine Standard Time) and then race across the Pacific until it reaches southern Chile and Argentina. Unfortunately, this total solar eclipse is not visible in the Philippines. 

It’s been almost a year since I first witnessed a total solar eclipse. I’ll never forget how amazed I was when I saw the diamond ring effect caused by the moon’s gradual movement away from the sun. That moment was absolutely priceless.

Because I can’t go to the Pacific and South America, I’ll just watch the total solar eclipse over the internet. I am thankful to astronomical organizations and enthusiasts who are kind enough and willing to provide live webcasts of the said eclipse.

Below is a list of websites that has live broadcasting of the event: (Note:  Most live streaming will start at 2:15 am in the Philippines.)
