Eclipse Megamovie

  • Released Tuesday, March 12, 2024

Eclipse Megamovie is a NASA-funded citizen science project that engages photographers across the United States to capture images of the Sun’s outermost atmosphere – the corona – during the total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024. Volunteers will use DSLR cameras on mounts that will track the Sun’s position in the sky to record changes in the Sun’s corona during the eclipse.

Eclipse Megamovie is one of many participatory science projects happening during the 2024 total solar eclipse.
