Twitter has announced that it’s teamed up with The Weather Channel to live stream next week’s total solar eclipse. The viewing, which is scheduled to kick off at 12 p.m. (EST) on Monday, August 21, will include footage from cities in Idaho, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, Kentucky, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee and Wyoming.

To provide the best possible view of the eclipse, Twitter has enlisted the help of The Weather Channel’s storm trackers and high-resolution aerial drones, and NASA’s powerful space-pointing equipment. Meteorologists Ari Sarsalari and Domenica Davis will present the footage live on air.

Those wanting to tune into the stream can do so from noon on Monday by heading over to the dedicated #Eclipse2017 page on Twitter. It will also be available on The Weather Channel’s website.
