Update #1: Here’s a song for your Eclipse experience, from our favorite geek chanteuse, Marian Call:
We’re geeks, we love science, and the total eclipse hitting the US today may be our one chance to see such an awesome astronomical display, so we’re going to enjoy it. A large number of the GeekDads and GeekMoms are out to see the totality (or the mostality) with our families, or wherever we can, and we’re going to share it with you. We’ll update with new pictures and livestreams from all over as they become available, so stay tunes, and refresh often!
To start things off, and especially if you’re stuck inside today, here’s webcam service EarthCam’s map of their webcams that are in the path of the totality. Their cam on the Space Needle will see things the earliest, starting around 12.08pm EDT, but it’ll only reach 91% totality. This cam in Jackson Hole, WY will start a few minutes later, and will reach 100% totality at 1:36pm EDT.
