How to watch the total solar eclipse from anywhere on Earth

2024-07-13 20:15:34      点击:800

As the moon passes between the Earth and the sun, blotting out our nearest star on August 21, millions of Americans will look up to see the total solar eclipse in person.

But even if you aren't in the path of totality, where the moon will temporarily completely block the sun, you can still get in in on the eclipse action, thanks to the wonders of the internet.

SEE ALSO:You can do some really cool science during the total solar eclipse

NASA and other space-centric organizations are planning to stream their views of the total eclipse for free, and if you're located in other parts of North America, you can still see at least a partial eclipse in person (but only if you take the right safety precautions).

Here's a rundown of how you can watch the eclipse from literally anywhere on the planet.

NASA webcasts

NASA is going all-out for this eclipse, and rightfully so. (You can watch the space agency's coverage live in the window above.)

Monday will mark the first time a total solar eclipse will grace the skies above the contiguous United States since 1979, and even then, totality was only visible for a very small part of the country.

For this eclipse, NASA is planning to stream live coverage of the cosmic event from 12 p.m. ET to 4 p.m. ET from 12 different locations around the continental United States.

And when NASA says they're airing it from various locations, that's somewhat of an understatement. The space and Earth science agency will use 57 low-cost, high-altitude balloons to capture views of the eclipse. along with research aircraft and ground-based telescopes.

The space agency will also host another webcast through NASA EDGE from 11:45 a.m. ET to 4 p.m. ET from Carbondale, Illinois, which will experience a full 2 minutes and 38 seconds of totality.

Great, so where can I watch? NASA will host its webcast on Ustream and social media channels, including Facebook. The NASA EDGE webcast will also be available on Ustream and Facebook Live.

Watch it on social media

Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat are planning special live streams, emoji, and other cool things to help people around the U.S. celebrate the eclipse.

For its part, Facebook will share 360-degree videos of the eclipse from South Carolina, and Twitter is partnering with the Weather Channel to show off their views of the cosmic event.

In VR with CNN

Just in case you're looking for an immersive experience as part of your solar eclipse plans, CNN has you pretty much covered.

CNN and Volvo will air 360-degree video showing the solar eclipse around the country as part of their special coverage for the event starting at 1 p.m. ET online.

"The livestream will be enhanced by real-time graphics, close-up views of the sun, and experts from the science community joining along the way to explain the significance of this phenomenon," CNN said in a statement.

Great, so where can I watch? CNN's mobile app and Facebook page will air the 360 video throughout the day.

With augmented reality on The Weather Channel

The Weather Channel will have eclipse coverage beginning at 6 a.m. ET on Monday, with correspondents positioned along the entire path of totality. For example, the well-known broadcast meteorologists Jim Cantore and Stephanie Abrams will broadcast live from Illinois and Oregon, respectively, which are both in the path of totality.

The network will even broadcast live from a "Total Eclipse Cruise" in the Atlantic, as the path of totality moves offshore late in the day.

Even more interesting will be the in-studio augmented and mixed reality explainers to help viewers understand the science behind eclipse viewing.

The Weather Channel is also streaming the eclipse live on Twitter starting at noon ET.

Great, so where can I watch?On TV, as well as on weather.com and on Twitter.

Watch it on network TV

Yes! It's true! Even regular old network television stations are getting in on the eclipse action.

NBC News, for example, is planning special solar eclipse coverage throughout the day on Monday.

Lester Holt will anchor a special report on the eclipse from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., and Al Roker will report live from Charleston, South Carolina.

ABC will also air an eclipse special live starting at 1 p.m. ET and lasting until 3 p.m. ET. That coverage will include on-the-scene reporting in Oregon, Tennessee, South Carolina, and other parts of the country.

Other networks will also have solar eclipse specials airing throughout the day, and local news will definitely focus on this, particularly if you're in the path of totality.

Great, so where can I watch? Well, on TV of course, but NBC will air full coverage of the eclipse online through the NBC News website. ABC will air coverage of the eclipse live online as well.

A Spanish language broadcast with Slooh

Slooh, an organization known for its space webcasts, will host a free, five-hour livestream of the eclipse starting at 11:30 a.m. ET from Idaho.

The live feed will feature expert commentary about the eclipse.

"For those who cannot witness the event in person, Slooh will broadcast feeds from telescope partners across the nation bringing viewers live views of totality as it races across the USA," Slooh said in a statement.

"Slooh will also livestream a Spanish language version of the broadcast in partnership with Univision."

Great, so where can I watch?Slooh will host its webcast on Slooh.com and the organization's Facebook page.

And of course, in person

Perhaps the most fun (and maybe even frustrating) way of seeing the eclipse will be in person.

Anyone in North America will be treated to a view of at least a partial eclipse, while the millions of people within the 70-mile-wide path of totality from Oregon to South Carolina will have a chance to see the total eclipse in person.

All you need to see the eclipse is a pair of eclipse glasses (or some other safe viewing device) and clear skies.

That said, traffic and cloud cover may get in your way, so having the option to watch these big time eclipse festivities on TV and the internet could be a boon for anyone catching eclipse fever in less-than-ideal circumstances.
