Mainers might not be able to see a total eclipse on Monday, but here's where you can watch it live as it makes its way across the country.

Maine is not in the direct line of the eclipse so at best we will only see about 60-percent of the event. Here are the best places in Maine to watch the eclipse based on cloud cover.

In Maine, the eclipse is expected to reach its peak at 2:45 p.m. and be over around 3:53 p.m. You'll begin to see changes around 1:30 p.m.

If you don't have glasses to safely watch the eclipse live, here's a way to make your own viewer.
