For whatever the reason, if you just simply can’t make it out to any of the best spots to view the total solar eclipse coming up on Monday, August 21, you’re in luck. The Science Channel has your back and will be airing coverage of the eclipse from Madras, Oregon.
According to The Oregonian, the coverage will not only be live on The Science Channel but streamed on Facebook as well, with astronomers and educators on site narrating the eclipse as it happens – partnering with the Lowell Observatory and its Lowell Solar Eclipse.
Beginning in Oregon, with as least one million expected to visit here, the “path of totality,” will span across the country from the Midwest to the Southeast. The Lowell Solar Eclipse Experience will take place Aug. 20 to the 22nd at Madras High School, with Madras being a top viewing spot for the 2017 solar eclipse.
And not only Madras, but other viewing locations across the country such as Tennessee, Idaho, Nebraska and South Carolina will also be available to watch on The Science Channel. For all you wanting to get a glimpse on Facebook, The Science Channel is expected to cover the eclipse live on August 21, with the eclipse set to happen between 10:15 and 10:25 a.m. in Oregon.
The Science Channel is also airing The Great American Eclipse, a primetime special which features footage from the day and set to air at 9 p.m. August 21. Head on over here to check out some great locations in Oregon to see the eclipse yourself!
