As the 115 cardinal-electors of the Catholic Church are gathered in conclave, The Huffington Post is running a live stream of smoke appearances at the Sistine Chapel. If you're waiting as breathlessly for white smoke as we are, you've come to the right place!
Depending on when the winning vote is taken, white smoke will arise from the Sistine Chapel at 10:30 a.m. CET (5:30 a.m. EDT / 2:30 a.m. PDT), noon CET (7 a.m. EDT / 4 a.m. PDT), 5:30 p.m. CET (12:30 p.m. EDT / 9:30 a.m. PDT) or 7 p.m. CET (2 p.m. EDT / 11 a.m. PDT). If no pope is elected, black smoke will arise from the chapel's chimney at noon CET (7 a.m. EDT / 4 a.m. PDT) and 7 p.m. CET (2 p.m. EDT / 11 a.m. PDT). All times are estimates based on prior papal elections and predictions from the Vatican. Actual times may vary.
This page will be continuously updated with the latest smoke signals.
