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

The agency will be live streaming from 12 different locations that will get the full show, so you can watch the action unfold across the country. 

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

There are a bunch of other ways to watch, including on Facebook, Periscope, or on NASA's website

Share your eclipse photos with us

We'll use some of the photos people send to us in a slideshow on GoMN.com. 

What will Minnesotans see? 

Minnesota won't see a total solar eclipse, but we will see a partial eclipse. 

The sun in the Twin Cities will be about 83 percent covered by the moon, while northern Minnesota will see a little less coverage. You can check the type of eclipse you'll see here

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.)
