UA balloon will help NASA live stream eclipse Monday

Team Fenrir prepares the camera portion of their balloon project at The University of Alabama Friday.

We'll get a view of the eclipse 100,000 feet in the air.

The video will be provided by 7 engineering students at The University of Alabama.

Project Fenrir will send a balloon high above with two cameras. One camera will be pointed at the ground to capture the moon's shadow. The second camera will film the sun.

The UA students will launch the balloon Monday at South Carolina State University.

NASA will use 55 balloon teams, including Project Fenrir, to help live stream the eclipse over the internet.
