On February 26, 1998, a total solar eclipse darkened skies
in a swath stretching from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic,
across the Caribbean. From the island of Aruba, an Exploratorium
team presented a live Webcast of this celestial event.
At the time, Webcasting technology was in its infancy, and this
first live Webcast ever of a solar eclipse broke existing records
for the number of viewers. Watch the archived Webcast here, or
