KRON4 has cameras with solar filters to capture the eclipse in its partial phases, along with custom modifications that can photograph the corona and that are invisible and safe to the human eye.
Cameras will be positioned here in the Bay Area and across the country to capture the spectacular event from start to finish. KRON4 will provide in depth coverage starting at 4 a.m. until 11 a.m. on TV. KRON4’s digital platforms will stream dozens of cameras as the sky goes dark.
You can also follow the eclipse totality across the country with the stream below provided by NASA. It shows you the eclipse from a series of 50 cameras attached to balloons at elevations of up to 100,000 feet.
NOTE: The livestream of the solar eclipse will run from 10:15 a.m. to 11:49 p.m. The video above will be replaced with the livestream on Monday.
Solar Eclipse viewing tips:
No peeking without eclipse glasses or other certified filters except during the two minutes or so when the moon completely blots out the sun, called totality. That’s the only time it’s safe to view the eclipse without protection. When totality is ending, then it’s time to put them back on.
To be clear, totality means 100 percent of the sun is covered. That will occur only along a narrow strip stretching from Oregon, through the Midwestern plains, down to South Carolina. The rest of the U.S. gets a partial eclipse that extends into Canada and to the top of South America.
