Exploratorium: The Museum of Science, Art & Human Perception

According to the Exploratorium Online website: "On August 1, 2008, a total solar eclipse occurred as the new moon moved directly between the sun and the earth. The moon’s umbral shadow fell on parts of the Arctic Ocean, Canada, Greenland, Russia, Mongolia, and China."

The view was spectacular for sure, but if you missed it, you may view it at any time from the view of your own computer via a webcast provided on Exploratorium Online.
Information from their website states that the Exploratorium has been online since 1993 and was one of the first science museums to build a site on the World Wide Web.
Visit their stie to find tools for teaching and a digital library.
