Wyoming PBS to live stream Aug. 21 solar event


For the first time in nearly a century, a total solar eclipse will cross the state of Wyoming and WyomingPBS, stationed in Riverton along the path of totality, will be there to capture it.

On Monday, August 21 from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., WyomingPBS will live stream the eclipse at and on the WyomingPBS Facebook page at 

NOVA, the long-running PBS science series, will air a special on the eclipse Monday evening at 8 p.m. and have asked WyomingPBS to provide them with some iconic Wyoming footage of the eclipse. “We’ll have crews around central Wyoming poised to capture this once-in -a-lifetime event set against the backdrop of our beautiful Wyoming landscapes,” said WyomingPBS General Manager Terry Dugas.

WyomingPBS producer Craig Blumenshine will interview solar physicists Loren Acton and Scott Acton after the eclipse for a special edition of the weekly public affairs program “Wyoming Chronicle.” The show is slated to air in early October 2017.
