Too cloudy to see the eclipse in Seattle, but you can watch it online

If you were hoping to look skyward from Seattle to catch today’s solar eclipse, you’re out of luck due to cloudy weather. However, in this day and age, you can of course catch all the action on live Web streams from locations with cloud-free weather.

This one from SLOOH  SpaceCamera is the best one I’ve found, showing the eclipse as seen from California.

The annular eclipse, in which the moon passes in front of the sun leaving only a golden ring around its edges, was visible to wide areas across Asia on Monday. It is moving across the Pacific and can now be seen in parts of the western United States.
