Because, not every one of us has the privilege to travel to the US and witness the "once-in-a-lifetime celestial event," in person, Twitter has teamed up with The Weather Channel to live stream next week’s total solar eclipse that will cross the US from coast to coast in nearly 100 years.


Interestingly, this won't be a static stream and will include live shots from 10 locations including Stanley, Idaho; Hopkinsville, Kentucky; McMinnville, Oregon; and Nashville, Tennessee, among others.

The stream will be hosted by meteorologists Ari Sarsalari and Domenica Davis, and it will also feature “high-resolution and aerial drone footage from Weather’s network of storm trackers,” and real-time eclipse footage courtesy of NASA. "We're going to party like it's New Year's Eve," Neil Katz, the Weather Channel's editor-in-chief, said in a statement.

The interactive livestream kicks off at noon (ET) on August 21. And don't forget to tweet your thoughts as you watch it all unfold online.
