If you won’t be heading outside or can’t get the proper eyewear in time to view the solar eclipse, then NASA is offering a multitude of ways to watch it online.

NASA announced they will be televising the eclipse live from coast to coast from the ground, aircraft, and even the International Space Station during a four-hour broadcast “Eclipse Across America: Through the Eyes of NASA,” and you can watch it via live stream.

The programming begins at noon EDT on August 21 with a preview show from Charleston, South Carolina and the main show begins at 1:00 p.m. NASA will be following the path of the eclipse across the U.S. and feature views from NASA’s research aircraft, high-altitude balloons, satellites and specially-modified telescopes. Before the big day NASA brought in George Takei to share more tips on how to watch the solar eclipse (see below).
