Are you stuck in the caverns of Midtown, unable to see the sunlight through the skyscrapers? Time to pivot yourself to video — NASA will be livestreaming the Great American Eclipse starting at noon today RIGHT HERE (and on a few platforms). Here's the YouTube they'll be streaming from, as well:
At 12 p.m. they'll have an eclipse preview show, hosted from South Carolina, and at 1 p.m. they'll start programming that "will cover the path of totality the eclipse will take across the United States, from Oregon to South Carolina."
This is the first cross-country eclipse in 99 years, though not every state will get totality. In New York, we'll only get a partial eclipse (71%), which will start to become visible around 1:23 p.m., concluding around 4 p.m. The best time to look outside will be at 2:44 p.m., when we'll experience a two-minute peak of darkness.
Vox has a neat tool that will show you a simulation of what you'll see in your zip code—this is similar to what we'll see in NYC:
