Live Broadcast of Total Eclipse of the Sun – July 21 or 22, 2009

On Wednesday, 2009 July 22, a total eclipse of the Sun will be visible from within a narrow corridor traversing half of Earth.  Due to the time difference between China and the US, the live on-line viewing time for the eclipse over Shanghai will be Tuesday, July 21 from 9:35pm to 9:41pm Eastern Daylight Time.

The Sun-Earth Day project has prepared various resources for the event. They are available on-line and include stories, activities, and podcasts about eclipses. To access these resources, please visit the Sun Earth Day website at

A multi-site federated live broadcast of the eclipse will be provided by the National Astronomical Observatory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. To view the webcast, please visit the following website:
