With today's forecast calling for rain and cloudy skies, it might be ruining many people's plans to see that partial or full solar eclipse. So I wanted to let you know that even though you may not be able to see what's happening, there is a safer way to view the eclipse as it's happening, without the need for Eclipse glasses or driving across the country. All you need is internet access.


NASA, as you can imagine, is pretty excited about the eclipse. They will have a few different ways for you to view the eclipse today.

You can watch on NASA by clicking HERE. The event will go LIVE at noon.

If you want to have your picture taken outside during the eclipse, there are actually better colors to wear! Who knew! According to, you should wear red or green. The reason?

The spokesperson said this:

“Red and green outfits will not only enhance the experience but also give your photos a unique, vivid splash against the eclipse’s backdrop. This Purkinje effect during the coming eclipse will turn the whole experience from just watching the sky go dark to a real-life science demo on your clothes. But to really see the changes in color saturation, lots of people need to wear these complimentary red and green colors. Two or five in a group of 100 wouldn’t help. This isn’t just an eclipse thing. It’s similar to how we observe garden flowers in the evening. Reds turn darker, almost black, while blues and greens get brighter. That’s because neutrals blend into the eclipse’s shadow, missing out on the color transformation that makes the moment special."
