This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.


If you don’t happen to be passing through Indonesia, Sulawei, Borneo, or the Maluku Islands this evening, don’t worry. You can still see the total solar eclipse — just not in person.

The eclipse is expected to be at its best on the island of Sulawesi, near Borneo but it will also be partially visible in Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Hawaii and northern Australia.

Viewers will see a beautiful halo effect as the earth, sun and moon align. The solar event happens only once a year because the sun and moon do not orbit on the same plane.

If you want to watch a live stream of the solar eclipse, NASA will be streaming it live starting at 7 p.m. CST.
