2017 Eclipse Live Stream

Live Stream Information

On August 21, 2017 we will be hosting a live stream of the 2017 solar eclipse as seen from our rooftop observatory in Merrillville, Indiana. During the stream we will have live footage from our telescope and roof mounted cameras, as well as on screen commentary and information about the progress of the solar eclipse. We will be streaming regardless of weather conditions.

Live Stream Schedule

At 11:00 a.m. we will begin all of our streams. A countdown page will be displayed until we are ready to go live at 11:30 a.m. Please tune in at 11:30 a.m. for a welcome message from our director and for a preview of our upcoming fall public show, Dawn of the Space Age.

After our stream begins we will provide on-screen and audio information about our progress towards the maximum eclipse.
