The sun’s total eclipse is finally over as NASA predicts over 99 percent eclipse coverage in Antarctica, which will be the only place on earth to have a total solar eclipse on Earth.
The eclipse starts at 1:34 p.m. Eastern, but the greatest angle for viewing will be seen at 2:15 p.m. A partial eclipse will be visible through the end of the day.
Get ready to look up!
The Facebook Live LIVE broadcast will show the entire eclipse, but it’s unclear exactly what time it will be best to look. As CNN puts it: “[It will] begin to fade from view at around 3:45 p.m. Eastern; one or two degrees west of the point where the Sun’s center point is.”

Some regions will get a partial eclipse.
The South Pole Station, NASA’s largest and tallest on Earth, may get a partial eclipse. But in the main event, it is in the wrong place. Antarctica still sees one annular eclipse per century.
