Why Go Outside To See The Solar Eclipse When You Can Watch Our Live Blog Right Here

Today the moon will "take a bite out of" the sun in a partial solar eclipse, the likes of which won't recur in the U.S. until 2023.

But maybe the weather is crummy where you are. Or maybe those warnings about going blind have you too worried to venture outside. In any case, you can sit right where you are and watch the eclipse unfold on our live blog.

It runs through 7 p.m. EDT.

SCROLL DOWN FOR LIVE UPDATES.

Here to guide you are HuffPost Science editors David Freeman, Jacqueline Howard and Macrina Cooper-White. For the duration of our live blog, we'll be joined by Dr. Federica Bianco, a physicist from New York University.

We encourage you to leave comments here and tweet your photos of the eclipse with the hashtag #HuffPostEclipse. Or submit them directly to our "Partial Solar Eclipse" slideshow below.

We'll be collecting photos from all over, and yours may be featured!

Caution: If you're outside enjoying the eclipse, use eye protection.
