AGU Press Conference - Eclipse 2017: Studying the Sun-Earth Connection and More from the Moon’s Shadow

While people across North America took in the Aug. 21 eclipse, hundreds of citizen, student, and professional scientists were collecting scientific data. They gathered data with telescopes on the ground, balloons launched to the stratosphere, jets chasing the Moon’s shadow, and satellites far above Earth. In this panel, participants will share some of the initial results from a cross-section of these studies, in fields ranging from solar physics to Earth science to space biology.
