Starting just after dawn, the eclipse cast its 150-kilometer (95-mile) shadow in Australia's Northern Territory, crossed the northeast tip of the country and was swooping east across the South Pacific, where no islands are in its direct path.

There's a rare hybrid solar eclipse coming on Sunday. And no matter where you are in the world, you will be able to see it thanks to the Internet.

It will be visible firsthand on the Eastern Seaboard of the United States, in parts of southern Europe, or anywhere in Africa.

If you live in the Bay Area, or somewhere that is not any of the places mentioned above, then you will have to watch it live over the Internet.

An astronomer in Kenya is planning to stream the event.

The Slooh broadcast will begin at 3:45 a.m. PDT.
