How To Live Stream The Solar Eclipse: Catch The Rare Event From Anywhere!

live stream solar eclipse

Today is finally the day! The rare total eclipse will grace the skies over parts of the United States—and we won’t see another in the country for another two decades. So don’t miss it! If you can’t get outside to catch the event live, cloudy skies are blocking the show, or you don’t live the path of totality, you can live stream the solar eclipse on several platforms.

NASA is offering an online live stream of the event. Experts will help lead the show and will also give coverage of the sounding rocket launch that will happen during the solar eclipse. This broadcast will air in both English and Spanish.

NPR is broadcasting from Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine, if you’d like to get a more localized experience. USA Today will also cover views from Washington, D.C., Indiana, Oklahoma, Texas, and New York

Your local news stations will also be sharing live videos of the event, but if you don’t have access, you can tune into Hulu or Disney + for ABC’s live stream starting at noon MST.

Check Out The Path Of Totality Map To See If Your City Will Have Views Of The Total Solar Eclipse

For those of you hoping to catch the solar eclipse in person, you can find the path of totality here. About 36 million people live in the 115-mile area that extends from Texas through Maine. If you don’t have a view of the total event, 99% of the remaining US cities will experience a partial eclipse.

Remember, If you’re skipping the live-streamed eclipse for the real event, be sure to wear proper eye gear! Looking at the solar eclipse can cause permanent damage to your eyes! If you don’t have a pair, you can easily make a pinhole camera with supplies you likely have in your home.
