And Google has a doodle that is showing the eclipse in real time, from cameras in South Africa, Dubai and the Canary Islands.

“It just sort of happened very naturally,” Anne Espiritu of Google told ABC. “For us, it sort of ties in with our love of geekiness and our fascination with the universe.”

The images on the doodle update every two minutes. Because the eclipse is nearly over, you can now use the slider to play the images back and forth as a time-lapse movie, watching Earth’s shadow move across the face of the moon.
