WHAT: For the first time, EarthCam’s live webcams will follow the totality of the solar eclipse throughout the United States on August 21, 2017. From the top of the Seattle Space Needle to the streets of Times Square, viewers will enjoy the extremely rare solar eclipse on www.earthcam.com.
The nationwide broadcast will begin in San Francisco, CA at 9:01 AM local time (12:01 EST) and continue across the continental United States, the first time such a phenomenon has been seen in 99 years. Watch for shadow bands crossing cityscapes such as Seattle, WA; St. Paul, MN; St. Louis, MO; and New York City. The eclipse may have an effect on animals whose behavior relies on light cues. View the bears at ZooMontana in Billings, MT and the giraffe family at the Greenville Zoo in Greenville, SC to see if they start to behave as if it is twilight. Even where the eclipse will not reach totality, viewers can join the crowds gathering in Las Vegas, NV; Bourbon Street in New Orleans, LA and Times Square, NYC.
WHY: The last total solar eclipse in the United States was 99 years ago. The path of totality crosses the country from West coast to East coast through 14 states. The best way to watch the eclipse as it occurs across the country is on EarthCam’s special event page created exclusively for the total solar eclipse. EarthCam is also partnering with NASA to show their entire broadcast from 12PM till 4 PM EST, live on billboards in Times Square. Over 45 webcams can also be viewed in a special playlist on EarthCamTV, available on Apple TV and Amazon Fire devices.
HOW: Watch the solar eclipse occur via 45 different camera locations with EarthCam’s live webcams!
