Eclipse Megamovie Movies

August 21st, 2017 was the astronomical event of a lifetime, a total solar eclipse. This eclipse would span the entire United States from Oregon to South Carolina with a 70 mile swath of totality for over two minutes.

The hype had been building for months. Reservations for lodging had been made years in advance for some while others waited to see what the weather would bring and made a last minute excursion toward totality. For some, the weather, the location did not cooperate and we had to settle for NASA Live Streaming, Local News or Social Media.

Social media made it possible for folks to see totality no matter where they were and we have compiled a series of video presentations of the 2017 Great Solar Eclipse.

Like a Premium Edition DVD or Blu-Ray, watch the “making of” the Google sponsored video, the Eclipse Megamovie
….Now that the preview is over watch the complete Eclipse Megamovie:

There were also other movies made by the The Crowd & The Cloud.
Video about the Eclipse Megamovie:

Here is a behind the scenes video of the Crowd and Cloud Eclipse Road trip, with interviews, insights and a generally fun time with Eclipse Megamovie volunteers:

Eclipse Megamovie – Thank You

We are no longer taking photographs for the Eclipse Megamovie project via our Google website. Scientists, Engineers, Educators, Science Communicators, and Members of the General Public took cool photographs of the total solar eclipse, August 21, 2017, like the one above. They then uploaded their collective 46,000 photographs to the Eclipse Megamovie Project to create the largest public database of a total solar eclipse photos that has ever been collected. Scientists at the Space Sciences Laboratory are currently analyzing the images from this dataset in anticipation of new solar discoveries.
