This simulation shows the total eclipse of the sun on 20th March 2015, as seen from the following twelve different viewpoints.

Bottom row, left to right:
The eclipse is total in Tórshavn, Longyearbyen, and the North Pole, and is partial in the other nine locations. Lines of altitude and azimuth can be seen in the backgroun. At the North Pole, the horizon can be seen, and the Sun is rising during the eclipse.
If you set the simulation running, you can watch the eclipse progress at each of the twelve locations. Since different computers run at different speeds, you may need to edit the evolution time step to get the simulation to run at an acceptable rate.
