Solar Eclipse

NPR's Joe Palca reports on today's partial eclipse of the sun. It's the first time since 1954 that there's been a partial solar eclipse on Christmas Day, but the last eclipse was only visible in South Africa. Today's partial eclipse will be visible across North America. More information on times the eclipse will be visible in your area is on the NPR website.
