The 2024 solar eclipse breakdown!

For everyone who can’t see the full eclipse today, there are a few different ways to watch it online.

You can check it out on NASA’s live YouTube stream . . . something called the Virtual Telescope Project is also showing it . . . and TimeAndDate.com has their own live feed too.

That said, NASA is running a big study today to look at how animals react to the eclipse.  As the temperature drops and it gets dark, birds and other wildlife tend to act funny because they think it’s nighttime.

This seems dumb, but it’s not:  “Could the eclipse disrupt cell service?”  Not the eclipse itself.  But an influx of tourists along the path of totality could overwhelm cell towers in some spots.

Some schools around the country canceled class today.  Partly because they didn’t want to be responsible for kids staring at the eclipse and hurting their eyes.

NASA felt the need to debunk a myth that you can’t eat during an eclipse.  (???)  The idea is it somehow poisons food, because the radiation from the Sun is different.  It’s not true, so feel free to pop some popcorn while you watch it.

All those tourists are also why we’ve seen so many emergency alerts about the eclipse over the past month.  A lot of small towns along the path aren’t used to having so many people around.
