Viewing Today's Solar Eclipse (20 March 2015)

The total Solar Eclipse of 20 March in the Northern Hemisphere is a long one, due to the perigee full Moon. Unfortunately the track of totality largely misses land. It is effectively only visible in the Fareo Islands and Svalbard Islands. A lot of the Northern Hemisphere sees a decent partial eclipse though.

While we in the Southen Hemisphere don't see any of this, there are a couple of live webcasts of the eclipse to help us enjoy it vicariously.
