Several different organizations will broadcast live footage of the solar eclipse Sunday, as seen through telescopes in various locations around the world. Viewers can track the eclipse as it moves from East Asia, crosses the Pacific and darkens the skies over much of western Northern America. SPACE.com will offer several of the solar eclipse webcasts for readers.
The Slooh Space Camera, for example, will stream live feeds from telescopes in Japan, California, Arizona, and New Mexico, starting at 5:30 p.m. EDT (2130 GMT). Viewers will be able to snap their own pictures of the eclipse via the website, Slooh officials said. To watch, go to Slooh’s homepage on Sunday.

These people were more hardcore than I will ever hope to be. * Another one from the vintage vault – an abandoned New York movie theater that is both creepy and really beautiful. * From Cindy, an astonishing bird-shaped cloud appeared in Iceland this week. But what doth it portend?? * Here are 10 movie poster cliches (with plenty of examples). There are more at Christophe Courtois’ site, along with explanations as to their meaning … but it’s in French and I can’t seem to get a good blanket translation page to work (the link to his site is on the site I am linking to here … Linkception!) * Speaking of … how about some islandception? * Robot Revolution Update: the Russians have created a really, really, creepy robot. * “This song makes me feel crazy, like I’ve eaten loads of sweets.” Kids (English kids no less!) review Skrillex (and dance around). * Note to my childhood: apparently two cans and a string is possible as a communication device. I’m posting this because I want to know if you’ve tried it (I don’t have paper cups at my disposal at the moment) and does it really work? Also, the How Stuff Works site is A+ in general. * * *
