The last solar eclipse until 2015

But you can only see it if you live in Australia… or have the internet.

The eclipse will slide into place at 2:35 p.m. Chicago time, or just after dawn in Australia. Only people in the Northern Territory, Queensland, or those on boats in parts of the Pacific Ocean will have a view of the eclipse, and Australia’s tourism bureau expects 50,000 people to come watch the phenomenon. Unfortunately, the view may not be the best; weather casters in the area are predicting some cloud cover at the time of the eclipse.

You can check out live footage of the eclipse taken by the astronomy team at the Slooh Space Camera or at Space.com.

The next eclipse will be in March of 2015, and will only be visible in the north Atlantic.
