Total Solar Eclipse: NASA TV Live Begins at 12 PM EDT/11 AM CDT August 21, 2017


NASA EDGE live from Carbondale, Illinois in Saluki Stadium and more.

Live programming from NASA Solar Eclipse begins at 12 PM EDT/11 AM CDT August 21, 2017.

The Aug. 21 total solar eclipse across America is generating a lot of interest – and a lot of questions. You’ll find answers to many of your eclipse questions at NASA’s Eclipse 2017 website — eclipse2017.nasa.gov. The site is full of information to help you prepare for this rare celestial event – including eclipse-related activities, events, viewing safety tips, and other resources. Then, on the day of the eclipse, you can see the event “Through the Eyes of NASA” – during a special NASA TV broadcast that includes coast-to-coast coverage from the ground, from the air and from space. Coverage begins with a special pre-show at noon eastern – followed by in-depth coverage at 1pm. You can also watch on Aug. 21 at www.nasa.gov/eclipselive.

On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. Anyone within the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe inspiring sights – a total solar eclipse.

Carbondale’s total solar eclipse (100%) viewed live from Chicago on television or Internet will be about 2 minutes behind the eclipse in Chicago.
