On August 11, 1999, 3:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time, the Exploratorium presented a live Webcast of a total solar eclipse that passed across Europe and Asia. The program included direct satellite communication with our expedition team, reporting from a crowded square in Amasya, Turkey, a town along the path of totality.
