Today the moon will "take a bite out of" the sun in a partial solar eclipse, the likes of which won't recur in the U.S. until 2023.
But maybe the weather is crummy where you are. Or maybe those warnings about going blind have you too worried to venture outside. In any case, you can sit right where you are and watch the eclipse unfold on our live blog.
It runs through 7 p.m. EDT.

Here to guide you are HuffPost Science editors David Freeman, Jacqueline Howard and Macrina Cooper-White. For the duration of our live blog, we'll be joined by Dr. Federica Bianco, a physicist from New York University.
We encourage you to leave comments here and tweet your photos of the eclipse with the hashtag #HuffPostEclipse. Or submit them directly to our "Partial Solar Eclipse" slideshow below.
We'll be collecting photos from all over, and yours may be featured!
Caution: If you're outside enjoying the eclipse, use eye protection.

Eh, good enough. Only heard about this minutes before getting off work so didn't have the proper equipments to watch this outside. #Partial #Solar #eclipse #2014 viewed via #livestream from my school library thanks to #GriffithObservatory and #Slooh. In case you missed it and don't want to wait till 2023 to see the next occurrence. #partialsolareclipse #solareclipse2014. #cool #thatshot #sun #moon #saywhat #Ishouldbedoingmyhwdueinanhour. #LA #Arizona #views

eclipses come in bunches! an eclipse season has 1-3 eclipses, in 1-2 month/year when the Sun is near the Moon's nodes #HuffpostEclipse— federica bianco (@fedhere) October 23, 2014

for an eclipse you need alignment of Moon+Sun+Earth and also for a total one the nodes of the Moon and Sun orbits to align #HuffpostEclipse— federica bianco (@fedhere) October 23, 2014

the slight misalignment of the orbit's nodes is what makes this eclipse a partial one #HuffpostEclipse— federica bianco (@fedhere) October 23, 2014
