Unfortunately Minnesota isn't in the path of the total solar eclipse on Monday, but NASA's got our backs.

The live stream will start at 11 a.m. You can watch it on NASA's YouTube channel below.

But there's some bad news. It's supposed to be mostly cloudy for much of Minnesota during the eclipse. However, even if it's cloudy, the National Weather Service says people will still see a "noticeable loss of daylight." 

Cloud or not, remember you shouldn't look directly at the sun unless you have special solar eclipse glasses. (Don't have any? Here's a DIY way to make a viewer using a cereal box.)
