Watch America’s total solar eclipse move for the first time in nearly a century via live stream
The August 21 total solar eclipse is a rare event as it will be the first total solar eclipse in the contiguous United States since 1979.
The eclipse will be visible in the US for the first time after almost a century. It’s the must-see event of the year.
However, don’t worry if you are not in the United States and can’t witness the total solar eclipse in person, you can still see it online or via TV.
Here’s where you can live-stream the eclipse:
• NASA will have not one, but two live streams of the eclipse: NASA TV, the space agency’s television service, will broadcast live footage compiled from terrestrial video feeds, “eclipse jets,” spacecraft, high-altitude balloons, specially modified telescopes, and from aboard the International Space Station (ISS). Stream the eclipse on your favorite platform, including YouTube, Periscope, Twitch, and Facebook Live.
The space organization will also broadcast a live stream from NASA EDGE, its unscripted live feed.
• Twitter and the Weather Channel will live-stream the event. Coverage will include live shots from 10 locations in the eclipse’s “path of totality,” including Nashville, Casper, Wyoming; McMinnville, Oregon; and Hopkinsville, Kentucky, the point where is expected to stretch out the longest.
