The May 20, 2012 "ring of fire" annular eclipse will be viewable from eastern Asia, the Pacific and western North America (Photo: NASA)

As the eclipse is happening, we’ll try to dig up every online source we can find. Here’s what we’ve got so far.

Can’t see tonight’s annular eclipse from your location? It’s ok, you can watch it here live in a feed provided by the U.S. Department of the Interior! The video (posted after the jump) will be broadcast from Petroglyph National Monument in Albuquerque, NM, beginning at 9:00 p.m. Eastern / 6:00 p.m. Pacific.


Petroglyph National Monument will be a prime location for the May 20 annular eclipse in the U.S. (NPS)

National Park Service photographers will be taking photos from many other locations as well, you can find out more on the USDOI site here.

(If the above feed is blank, they may have reached capacity. Visit the feed directly here.)

Also, the SLOOH Space Camera site will be airing live feeds of the eclipse, as will the Hong Kong Observatory. Check the channels for their broadcast times.

(Video feed provided by LiveStream, the National Park ServiceĀ and the U.S. Department of the Interior)

So cool. Seems they are having trouble with the feed. I clicked in to the SLOOH site. Seems to be working fine there.

Looks like this is in black and white and not a very good close up. Too bad it’s not in color and a little more zoom lense would be nice.

Seattle had our usual thick, dark stratocumulus along with drizzle. :P

so now that the Sun and the Moon seemed the same size, one can imagine the real difference of sizes between them by comparing this two facts: light takes 500 seconds to get here from the Sun, and 1 second from the Moon.
