Vidstreams At around 19:45 GMT on November 13th, the northern Australian city of Cairns will begin to experience a total solar eclipse, and we here at the Register's Australian bureau have chosen a couple of methods whereby our round-the-globe-round-the-clock readership can join in the excitement and watch the sun go out online.

Complete darkness will hit the city at 20:38 GMT, before the path of the eclipse passes over the Pacific Ocean.

Eclipse-watchers have flown in from around the world for the event, which has also become the centre of a cultural festival in Cairns.

The video below, if all goes well, will bring you a live feed of the eclipse.

Below is Cairns' 'official' eclipse video, which now looks less likely to carry a live feed.

If all of the above don't work, let's hope this next one does, even though it is a small and low-res webcam.

2012's next eclipse is a penumbral eclipse, in which the moon will be partially shaded by the earth. ®
