Chasing Totality: Making the 2017 Eclipse Megamovie



On August 21, 2017 – a total eclipse stretched across the United States for the first time in almost 100 years. Google partnered with UC Berkeley and The Astronomical Society of the Pacific to document it by creating the first-ever Megamovie. Over 1,300 citizen scientists spread out across the path of totality with their cameras ready to photograph the sun’s corona during the few minutes that it would be visible, creating an open-source dataset that can be studied by scientists for years to come. Learn about their efforts, and catch a glimpse of totality, in this video. Spoiler alert: for about two minutes, it gets pretty dark out.
