Solar Ecplipse in Second Life and On the Web

This Friday August 1 there will be a full solar eclipse over Siberia and Western China. For those of us who cannot be there, the internet provides. The Exploratorium website will be running a live stream of the eclipse opening at 12:00 PM (CET Paris 12:00 PM)
If you are interested in a more three dimensional experience there will be a live stream in Second Life as well:

On August 1, 2008, a total solar eclipse will occur as the new moon moves directly between the sun and the earth. The moon's umbral shadow will fall first on Canada, then zoom across northern Greenland, the Arctic, central Russia, Mongolia, and into China, where an Exploratorium team will be waiting. Our fifth eclipse expedition brings our team to remote Xinjiang Provence in northwestern China, very close to the Mongolian border, where we'll Webcast the eclipse live. Please check back, as the date nears, for more details about our Eclipse webcast viewing party in Second Life.
