Some handy, online viewing technology to help you enjoy the 2017 Great American Eclipse. 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.
Watch the solar eclipse occur via 45 different camera locations with EarthCam’s live webcams!
