The total solar eclipse in the United States is a rare phenomenon. This is the first time total solar eclipse has been visible in the U.S. mainland since 1979, when it could be seen in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, and North Dakota. But the last time a solar eclipse stretched across the entire U.S., from coast to coast like today’s, was in 1918. We won’t have another total solar eclipse in the U.S. until 2024. But not everyone in the U.S. can get away from work and make it to the path of totality. If you won’t have a chance to watch the eclipse in person, you can still watch it live here online.

You can watch the solar eclipse on NASA’s live stream above. It will begin at noon Eastern with a pre-show, and prior to that you’ll see NASA’s regular programming. The live stream is provided by NASA and will cover the eclipse from coast-to-coast in 14 states, plus views from aircraft, high-altitude balloons, and even the International Space Station. The stream will also look at special events across the country celebrating the eclipse. The live stream above will show NASA’s regular programming until it begins with a preview show at 12 p.m. Eastern, followed by the eclipse live stream starting at 1 p.m. Eastern above and hereNASA’s live stream can also be viewed on Ustream and Twitch TV.

If for any reason the live stream above doesn’t work, or if you would like to see additional live stream options, see more streams and links below.
