To those of you in the path of totality I wish you clear skies. Enjoy 4 minutes of the most amazing spectacle Mother Nature has to offer.

For the rest of us I will be posting a variety of live streams in this thread as and when I find them.

To start here is NASA's. The broadcast starts at 1 p.m. EDT (1700 UTC).

The small city I live in is in the path of totality.  Already lots more traffic passing by.  School is closed, hotels are sold out and every store and restaurant is open. 

My wife, youngest daughter, her college friend and myself are going to a friends house.  Weather is blue skies predicted all day.

With or without cloud I am outside the viewing zone 👁️ 

I have seen others and they are impressive, clear skies to those in the path.

Another reliable source, NASASpaceflight (not a NASA site).

Here I have 91% totality and a few clouds but not enough to affect the view. Police are warning people to stay safe and not pull over on highways to view it. Philadelphia ABC 6 is airing a special broadcast for 2 hours showing it in various areas as it moves through the US.

Where I live won't be in totality, but the southern part of my state will be. I know people that drove hundreds of miles to see it in full totality.

There will people from all around the world that have flown thousands of miles to see it.

I wonder how many people will make a visit to the eye doctors after this. I read where a lot of those eyeglasses to protect the eyes are sold by scammers. :wacko:

My cable has the NASA Channel and I just put it on. Their coverage will start in about 2 minutes. Sadly it's beginning to look like a lot of clouds are moving in. Maximum eclipse here will begin at about 3:23 pm.

Totality has crossed from Mexico into Texas. Del Rio is just over a minute away from totality. I'm watching it now on ABC who is teamed up with Nat Geo.

Just reached and it's totally dark. They're showing the sun. At least the corona. That's an incredible sight! They have correspondents all through the line of totality.

Here's a live link.

And now for something completely different.

I've been outside watching it with my welding helmet on. I'm sure the neighbors are laughing at me. :lol:

Indianapolis is in totality. The speedway is jammed. They can see Jupiter very clearly. I'm going back out in 5 minutes when we reach maximum. Everything that was blue and white is now gray.

It's almost to Niagra Falls. I was out with other people from my building but we ended up with a lot of cloud cover. Didn't see a lot but it really did feel like it got colder. Niagra has a lot of cloud cover too. It has cleared a spot so they can see it. Burlington, Vermont is a minute away now. This is really moving quickly.

It's a minute until total in Houlton, Maine and it will exit the US into the Canadian Maritimes and the Atlantic Ocean. It went so quickly!

They're showing a video from the space station now. That's awesome! The ISS was over the east coast of the US and there's a huge black circle going up the coast! This picture is from 7 years ago but the one's from today are being released. This is just what it looks like. They said because the totality lasted a lot longer than the one 7 years ago scientists will have collected a whole lot more information out of this one.
