The Exploratorium science museum is encouraging residents to bring their sleeping bags and watch the eclipse.
Although solar eclipses take place in broad daylight, the sleeping bags are necessary for the Sun Franciscans because the light show is taking place across Africa and the Mediterranean at 2:55 a.m. PST.
But even though the eclipse is taking place on the other side of the Earth, the museum plans to provide out-of-this-world entertainment, including dancers from all the countries affected by the eclipse, including Togo, Benin, Nigeria, Libya, Egypt and Turkey.
If you cant make it to Sun Francisco, a live webcast of the eclipse will be shown at SecondLife.com, an online virtual reality website.
