2017 Totality

Curious about what has been going on behind the scenes with the THREE SOLAR ECLIPSES that have graced the U.S. in 2017, 2023 and 2024?

Then you should watch this documentary from the American Astronomical Society (AAS) that gives you all kind of info and insight into this truly monumental task.

From today's AAS News Release:

In celebration of the work that the American Astronomical Society (AAS) Solar Eclipse Task Force has been doing for the past decade to prepare for the North American solar eclipses of 21 August 2017, 14 October 2023, and 8 April 2024, the AAS has released a 25-minute documentary entitled The Path to the Path — a reference to the path of the Moon’s dark shadow as it sweeps across Earth’s surface during a total solar eclipse.

“With the help of NASA, the National Science Foundation, the American Institute of Physics, and many other partners, a large group of engaged volunteers has worked tirelessly to coordinate outreach efforts across the U.S. while sharing resources and ideas,” says Kevin Marvel, Executive Officer of the American Astronomical Society.
