Where to watch Tuesday's total solar eclipse

A total solar eclipse promises a special show for stargazers tomorrow -- the first to happen on Earth since mid-2010.

Did you know a total solar eclipse occurs tomorrow? Unfortunately, unless you live around certain areas in Australia or find yourself floating in the South Pacific Ocean, you won't really see the full effect -- unless you observe the phenomenon online.

If you want to catch the rare moment where the moon passes between Earth and the sun, Space.com recommends tuning in to the Slooh space camera Web site or a live feed by Tourism Tropical North Queensland on UStream.

Both streams will provide a live shot of the total solar eclipse from Cairns, Australia, when it occurs there around 12:35 p.m. PT on November 13. The city serves as a perfect stage for watching the event, as it's directly in the middle of the 108-mile-wide and 9,000-mile-long path of totality -- the only strip of land (and sea) that witnesses the full effect of this solar eclipse.

Astronomers expect New Zealand and Chile to see a strong partial eclipse. For your convenience, we embedded the total eclipse UStream feed below, so feel free to just bookmark this blog post and come back tomorrow.
