Solar Eclipse

explains what to look for during a solar eclipse, how to create a pinhole projector (for safely viewing an eclipse), why eclipses happen, a world map of future eclipses, and archives of webcasts of past eclipses in Greece (2004), the U.S. (2002), and more.

Interesting Fact:

For a few minutes during a total solar eclipse, when the disk of the moon slides precisely between our planet and the sun, we'll glimpse a sight seldom seen: the sun's hot, churning atmosphere, called the corona. During an eclipse, we'll have a better view of the lower corona than even space telescopes can provide.
This map shows the paths of totality of upcoming total eclipses.
