Tomorrow, July 22, 2009 (or today, depending on your locale) will bring the longest Solar Eclipse of the century. The majestic occurrence will last longer than a whopping six and a half minutes. The next solar eclipse that will last that long will be on June 13th, 2132.

Tomorrows eclipse will only be visible in parts of India, Bangladesh, China, Japan, Nepal and the Marshall Islands.

If you are like me, and don’t have the resources to jump on a plane to Nepal to see this magnificent event, you are lucky because we live in the era of streaming video. Which means you can watch the eclipse live from your computer! Wahoo!

Watch it online:
