Can’t make it to Australia for Tuesday’s solar eclipse? No problem. Ustream will take you across the Pacific and give you a front row seat to one of the most spectacular celestial events — a perfect alignment of sun, moon and Earth.
It’s the first total solar eclipse since July 2010 and the only one this year, so you won’t want to miss it. We’ll have live broadcasts from across Australia: Port Douglas, Fitzroy Island, Mareeba, Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef.
The festivities kick off on Tuesday, Nov. 13th at 3 p.m. ET / noon PT at www.ustream.tv.
Below are our partners offering live feeds of the skies:

Panasonics project, described as, “Filming the sun, using the sun” aims to capture and broadcast to the world a solar eclipse using only the power of sunlight. They’re using Panasonic’s high efficiency solar power-generating system, “HIT” to generate power with a portable battery back for power storage. They’ll then be able to broadcast the eclipse images captured on a Lumix GH2.
