Too Lazy to See the Eclipse Outside? -These Live Streams Have Got You Covered
Tomorrow, Monday, August 21 the “Great American Total Eclipse of 2017” will be upon us. An eclipse is when the moon lines up in front of the sun and completely blocks it off. You cannot look directly at it without eye protection or point your camera at it without proper solar lenses otherwise both your retina and the camera will be melted from the very harmful rays. If you have the right eye protection, but aren’t in one of the 12 states the eclipse will be view able from and aren’t planning to travel to see it, these live streaming links will let you view the solar eclipse both safely and efficiently as you do are not required to go or wear anything special.
NASA’s Live Streams:
NASA will be starting their first live stream at 10:45 CST and will last about 2 hours showing the entire eclipse process from the beginning, in Oregon, to the total eclipse in South Carolina at it’s end.
NASA 1 Live:
NASA’s second live stream is an all day event lasting from 10:45 AM CST until around 3:00 PM CST. NASA broadcasts this to be a more “edgier” than its more typical streams and says it will be “totally unscripted.” This stream will also include views from various NASA telescopes and more.
Other Live Streams:
On Monday, Aug. 21, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the Sun, and NASA will carry it live from coast to coast from unique vantage points on the ground and from aircraft and spacecraft, including the International Space Station. Coverage starts at noon ET/9am PT on Aug 21. Watch it live here on NASA's Facebook page or on your TV with the Facebook video app, available in major TV app stores. #Eclipse2017
