It’s an occurrence that won’t happen again for seven years in the United States, a total solar eclipse.
That’s why we are offering viewers a chance to see the eclipse right on our website.
“For us to be the technology partner for on the event, it’s incredible, and to be able to distribute this phenomenon to the mass…the millions, and to allow them to watch it live as it happens,” says Will Jamieson of STREAM.
And you certainly aren’t going to be alone in the endeavor.
“If it hits the numbers NASA expects, it will be the most viewed live-stream ever.”
NASA is currently projecting that one-hundred million people will be tuning in.
Here’s how the whole thing works.
The video streaming-service in collaboration with NASA will fly weather balloons into the band of totality at 100,000 feet in the air, from Oregon to South Carolina, to provide viewers of the stream a unique perspective of the total eclipse.
A unique perspective that no one watching from the ground will be able to witness, as well as a first.
“This will be the first time a live-streaming of an eclipse has ever been done at 100,000 feet.”
Not everyone will be in the path of totality, and for those who aren’t able to see the eclipse, this stream will allow them to watch in real-time. And you won’t have to worry about anything blocking your view, because at 100,000 feet in the air, there aren’t any clouds.
