Birth of Eclipse'98

The brainchild of Philip Staiger in June 1997, Eclipse'98 was launched as a method of communicating his interest in eclipses with his vision of a virtual schoolhouse combining global education with entertainment. The Eclipse'98 E-Team was formed to fulfill this vision over the web using state-of-the-art constructs and methods. Information and transmission of live eclipse images from different perspectives which create an "eclipse telepresence" in the homes and schools of children around the world was the goal.
