Watch NASA’s live stream of the solar eclipse

On August 21, 2017 the United States will witness a total solar eclipse. The Montana Space Grant Consortium at MSU is leading a nation-wide high-altitude ballooning project that will send balloons up to 100,000 ft, capturing live video and images of the eclipse. Follow the eclipse totality across the country from a series of 50 cameras attached to balloons at elevations of up to 100,000 feet.


The player will have video describing the balloon/camera project until the stream goes live Monday approximately 10:15 am MST – 1:50 pm MST. These times are estimates because it’s going to be difficult to get the exact time of when the balloons hit max altitude.
