Cal will team up with NASA and The Exploratorium to provide television coverage for what may be a devastating blow to the oldest and strongest of mankind’s enemies—the sun. On Aug. 1, NASA TV will broadcast a total solar eclipse that will be viewable from most places that are pretentiously far from California, television sets excepted.

Pinhole cameras probably won’t be needed to watch the eclipse’s broadcast, but an ability to stay up late will. The coverage happens at 3 a.m. Friday. But who goes to sleep before 5 a.m. anyway?
