Solar Eclipse on March 29th - live webcast

There is a total solar eclipse tomorrow starting in South America, tracking across North Africa and into western Asia. I had hoped to be on an eclipse tour on a cruise in the Mediterranean and on the Libyan/Chad border to see it but visa issues and the fact that the United States isn't the most popular country in the Arab world right now would have left a high probability of a canceled trip, so we didn't try.

As a second chance to see the solar eclipse I will try to watch the live webcast from Turkey supplied by San Francisco's Exploratorium. The coverage starts at 5 am Wilmington, DE time and the eclipse begins at 5:53am and lasts for about 3 minutes and 40 seconds. I hope the coverage is good.
