Here is a webcamera in Novosibirsk that updates image every second!
Live all around the clock!
On the background, we can see the Novosibirsk State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre.


If they could just point it at the sun, we wouldn't need to travel over there at all! :)

Artem,

With such frigid temperatures, how stable is the atmosphere (ie. seeing)? I have heard that some places in Russia have sub-arc second seeing.

How can anything in the atmosphere move with such temperatures to spoil the seeing. :lol:

No words can describe my anxiety. If I had the ability to make the eclipse happen tomorrow, I would do it.
