You Don't Have to Live in Australia to See the 'Ring of Fire' Eclipse

Thanks to the Slooh Space Camera, you can catch views of the 'Ring of Fire' solar eclipse starting today at 5:30 p.m. EDT (2130 GMT). 

This spectacular event occurs every year when the Moon nears the farthest point from the Earth making it appear too small to cover the Sun, creating a ring of fire effect.
