Watch live webcast of total solar eclipse

The image “http://www.mreclipse.com/SEphoto/TSE2001/image/T01cmpEm.JPG” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

live webcast from Griffith will show the eclipse from an island near Shanghai, China, and include some commentary from curators at the observatory.

The timeline for the webcast is:

5:24 p.m. P.D.T. = First Contact (when the Moon first begins to obscure the Sun)

6:37 - 6:43 p.m. P.D.T. = Totality (when the Moon completely covers the Sun)

8:03 p.m. P.D.T. = Last Contact (when the Moon no longer obscures the Sun)
