On the morning of November 14th, 2012, the North of Australia will witness a total solar eclipse. Panasonic, using only its HIT ® solar panels and lithium ion batteries for storage, will produce a live broadcast of this incredible and dramatic spectacle of the heavens live via USTREAM.

In May of this year, Panasonic broadcast an annular eclipse from Mount Fuji, Japan, so this will be the second such live broadcast. This time our challenge is to produce a clear live broadcast of an even more dramatic and spectacular total solar eclipse.

About the Total Solar EclipseA total solar eclipse occurs when the moon crosses between the sun and Earth, therefore effectively concealing the whole body of the sun from view. Since the total eclipse is a phenomenon in which the sun itself can't be seen, it is actually the hot gases of the Corona, the so called "diamond ring" and the "prominence" that we can actually observe. The viewing path from which someone is able to observe a total solar eclipse in its totality is very narrow, and therefore you would be lucky to see this even once in a lifetime.
