Twitter Teams With Weather Channel To Live Stream The Solar Eclipse
If you were wondering where to watch total solar eclipse on Monday, here is the answer – on Twitter.
On Monday, August 21st, the moon will hide the sun and for many people, this will be a once in a lifetime experience. The next total eclipse in the US will be viewable from Texas to Maine, but it will happen in 2024.
The one on Monday will cross the United States from coast to coast. The path of totality is stretching from Oregon to South Carolina. Not everyone will be able to catch a glimpse of the eclipse in person, but there are still ways to watch it. Many options are already there, and Twitter joined the party as well.
This social network made sure that everyone can see the solar eclipse. So even if you are not in the path of totality and don’t want to miss it, don’t worry.
Twitter has partnered up with the Weather Channel in order to live stream “the once in a lifetime celestial event”. You will be able to watch it even if you don’t have a Twitter account. Also, the live stream is available for both, mobile and desktop, including the Weather channel app and Weather.com.
“We are thrilled to partner with The Weather Channel and their award-winning digital editorial team for coverage of this momentous occasion,” Anthony Noto, COO, Twitter said in a statement.
“The ‘Chasing Eclipse 2017’ live stream allows people around the world to watch and join the #Eclipse2017 conversation as it unfolds live on Twitter.”, he added.
The live stream starts on Monday, August 21st at 12 PM ET and it will be hosted by meteorologists Ari Sarsalari and Domenica Davis.
