Your ticket to a total eclipse down under

Posted: Updated:

The first total solar eclipse in over two years will begin Tuesday afternoon - but it will only be visible in a few areas of the world.

According to space.com, more than 50,000 spectators are expected to watch the celestial event from Queensland, Australia.  The eclipse will only be visible from a small area of the Northern Territory of Australia and empty stretches of the Pacific Ocean.

Those who can't be there in person can watch it streamed live on the web starting at 2:30pm CST: http://www.space.com/18444-total-solar-eclipse-webcasts-2012.html

This will be the last total solar eclipse until March of 2015.
