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

over 2 years ago

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.
