FULL DETAILS: Rare total solar eclipse 2017
The Exploratorium was an early pioneer in the effort to live stream eclipses, sending scientists and technical staff all over the world to make it happen. Much of the funding comes from NASA, which is using the intense interest in eclipses to promote science education.
On Monday, the museum will be streaming high quality images of the total solar eclipse, along with expert commentary in English and Spanish, and a live music feed using digital data from the sun.

The Exploratorium has sent a team of almost a hundred people to Madras, Oregon and Caspar, Wyoming. These are two spots in the path of totality considered likely to have the best viewing weather.
ABC7 is the Exploratorium's media partner and will also be using the museum's telescope feeds in our coverage. On the day of the eclipse, we'll bring you live coverage on TV and online. Click here for other stories, videos, and photos on this rare celestial event.
