(Gray News/AP): If you were not in the path of totality or if clouds obscured your view, you were able to watch the total solar eclipse online on Monday. The eclipse moved across the United States.

Tens of millions of people who resided along a narrow stretch of the Pacific coast of Mexico to eastern Canada, weather permitting, looked skyward on Monday to witness daylight turn to twilight as the moon blotted out the sun.

To protect the eyes, eclipse glasses were essential. During the few minutes of total darkness, or total eclipse, it was safe to forgo wearing protective glasses.

Starting at 1:30 p.m. on Monday, Local News Live broadcast live nationwide coverage of The Great American Eclipse from along the path of totality. M. EDT.

Debra Alfarone and Rasheeda Kabba of Local News Live provided anchoring from Washington, D.C. Live reports from Gray reporters and correspondents will be available along the path of totality from Texas to Maine, along with meteorologist Sandra Brogan and WWBT meteorologist Ros Runner.

Apart from the livestream that was included with this story, Gray Media Group’s digital and streaming platforms, as well as over-the-air broadcasters in different markets, carried Local News Live’s coverage.

NASA started offering web and NASA TV streaming at 1:00 p.m. for several hours. m. EDT from a few cities along the path of totality. Scientists and crew members of the space station made appearances, and the space agency displayed images of the sun through telescopes. Small science-instrument carrying rockets took off from Wallops Island, Virginia, during the eclipse and entered the ionosphere, an electrically charged region of the atmosphere close to space’s edge.

Along the path of totality, Associated Press journalists dispersed to provide live coverage of the celebrations and watch parties. At 10 a.m., the AP livestream began. M. EDT with views originating from Mexico’s Mazatlán and other locations. The commentary began at 1:30 p.m. M. until 3:30 pm. M. In addition to live views from the route, EDT features interviews with scientists and organizers.

Live telescope images of the sun were shown at the Exploratorium museum from Junction, Texas, and Torreón, Mexico. In an experiment that was broadcast live from the stratosphere, scientists and students from the University of Maine launched high-altitude balloons. The sun was visible from various telescope feeds at Time and Date. Along the way, Slooh collaborated with a network of partner telescopes and transmitted from Texas.
