This is the first time since 1882 anybody's had a chance to see this from Earth. There were attempts back then to photograph it but they results were somewhat poor. With today's equipment, and with so many places on Earth able to view it, this will be one of the highest photographed celestial events ever. It starts at around 05:00 UTC (1:00am EDT), less than 2 hours from now. Those in the eastern US can see the end of it in the morning (Safety warning: Be sure to take the correct safety precautions -- never look directly at the sun without proper protection!). There are some sites that have set up webcams. Enjoy this event if you can see it -- the next one is in 2012, and after that, there won't be another one until 2117!
