All Things Eclipse WebinarLive from the path of totality, Charles Fulco discussed how an eclipse occurs, how to safely view the eclipse (no glasses, no problem), and shared classroom resources that you can use with your students. If you missed it, watch the archived webinar and explore the classroom resources.
Participate in Scientific Data Collection
GLOBE Observer Eclipse AppDownload this app for smart phones and tablets, register an account, and get your thermometer ready to collect citizen science data for NASA during the eclipse. Start practicing your cloud observations now – air temperature data collection will become active on August 18, 2017! Observations are needed from across North America-from the path of totality and those experiencing a partial eclipse.
EclipseMobEclipseMob is a crowdsourced effort to conduct the largest-ever low-frequency radio wave propagation experiment during the 2017 solar eclipse. You can build your own radio receiver and participate in the measurement!
Eclipse Megamovie 2017The Eclipse Megamovie Project will gather images of the 2017 total solar eclipse from over 1,000 volunteer photographers and amateur astronomers, as well as many more members of the general public. The goal is to add a new dimension to studies of the Sun's faint outer atmosphere – the corona. Stitching together thousands of images taken along the path of the 2017 total solar eclipse will provide a unique treasure-trove of information on how the corona changes over time. The resulting dataset will be open to the scientific community and general public for future research. Visit the site to sign up!
