Twitter has partnered with The Weather Channel to live stream next week’s total solar eclipse as the Moon’s shadow travels from the West Coast to the East Coast of the United States. The stream will start at 12PM ET on Monday, August 21st, and it will include live footage from cities in Idaho, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, Kentucky, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Wyoming. This is roughly the path of totality, meaning when the Moon will completely block out the Sun.
So if you’re not planning on traveling to a point along the path of totality and being there, with a pair of solar filter sunglasses at the right time, then a Twitter live stream is your next best bet. The stream will be hosted by meteorologists Ari Sarsalari and Domenica Davis, and it will also feature “high-resolution and aerial drone footage from Weather’s network of storm trackers,” and real-time eclipse footage courtesy of NASA. You’ll be able to find the stream starting at noon on Monday on The Weather Channel app, on the company’s website Weather.com, and on Twitter with this link.
