When the eclipse occurs this coming August, not everyone can head out to areas where the eclipse's umbra shadow can be seen. I will be heading to Idaho for the event.
However, there's a solution for people anywhere to see the eclipse. Travel + Leisure has an article on what they can do.
On August 21, the new moon will pass directly between the Earth and the sun in the first total solar eclipse visible from the continental U.S. in almost four decades.
But for those who won’t be able to view the eclipse this summer, NASA has a solution: The organization, along with online video platform Stream, will livestream coverage of the total solar eclipse from 57 high-altitude balloons across the country.
The balloons will be set up at dozens of points throughout the eclipse’s “path of totality” (where the moon casts its umbral shadow) as it crosses the Pacific Northwest, Midwest and Southeast regions of the U.S.
