Starting at roughly 10:00 a.m. PST, a solar eclipse will cross from coast to coast, beginning in Oregon and ending in South Carolina at 3:00 p.m. EST.
You can watch it above starting at 12 noon Eastern Time
The solar eclipse has seized the attention of Americans, as the event will be the first time an eclipse has crossed the entire country in recorded history.
However, experts warn that those who are not viewing the eclipse from the safety of the internet should take precautions and never stare right into the sun. Protective glasses and other safety gear are necessary to prevent on-lookers from experiencing eclipse blindness — a form of retina damage caused by solar radiation.
If you were unable to get eclipse glasses in time or you were conned into buying a fake pair, there are still other ways to see it — including a DIY “eclipse box.”
According to The Weather Channel, states with a prime viewing angle of the eclipse like Idaho, Oregon, and Wyoming will have clear skies, while South Carolina, Tennessee, and Nebraska may experience some overcast.
