Total Solar Eclipse 2017 App from Exploratorium
Explore Total Solar Eclipse, a mobile app that incorporates livestreaming. This free app gives you access to live video streams of the total solar eclipse occurring on August 21, 2017, which will cross from the west to east coasts of the United States.

Tune in to five simultaneous video streams, all from your smart phone or tablet:

  • Live coverage hosted by Exploratorium educators and NASA scientists
  • Live coverage in Spanish hosted by Exploratorium educators
  • Non-narrated 3-hour live telescope view of the full eclipse as seen from Oregon
  • Non-narrated 3-hour live telescope view of the full eclipse as seen from Wyoming
  • Live telescope view with live musical sonification and accompaniment by the Kronos Quartet

Smithsonian Solar Eclipse app
This August 21, 2017, the Sun and moon will align, giving Americans a front row seat to a rare celestial event—a total solar eclipse. Don't miss a moment with the Smithsonian Solar Eclipse app. Watch a live NASA stream of the eclipse as it travels across the continental United States, calculate your view with our interactive eclipse map, and get a virtual view in our eclipse simulator. While you wait, check out some of the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory's solar research and get even closer to the sun with near-live views from space.
The Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO) is one part of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, where leading astronomers ask, test, and answer some of humanity’s greatest questions.


iNaturalist

One of the world's most popular nature apps, iNaturalist helps you identify the plants and animals around you. Get connected with a community of over 400,000 scientists and naturalists who can help you learn more about nature! What's more, by recording and sharing your observations, you'll create research quality data for scientists working to better understand and protect nature.


GLOBE Observer

GLOBE Observer invites you to make observations about the Earth around you. Observations you collect and submit with this app are used by scientists to validate, interpret, and understand satellite data collected by NASA from space.

The current version includes two capabilities. GLOBE Clouds allows observers to make regular observations of the Earth’s cloud cover and compare it to NASA satellite observations. GLOBE Mosquito Habitat Mapper allows users to locate mosquito habitats, observe and identify mosquito larvae, and reduce the potential threat of mosquito borne disease.

By using the GLOBE Observer app, you are joining the GLOBE community and contributing important scientific data to NASA and GLOBE, your local community, and students and scientists worldwide. The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program is an international science and education program that provides students and the public worldwide with the opportunity to participate in data collection and the scientific process, and contribute meaningfully to our understanding of the Earth system and global environment.

app_Eclipse Soundscapes App
Eclipse Soundscapes

The Eclipse Soundscapes Project app is specially designed so that people who are blind and visually impaired can share in the awe and wonder of astronomical events in real time with their sighted peers.

The app is a joint effort between The Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO), NASA’s Heliophysics Education Consortium (HEC), the National Center for Accessible Media (NCAM), and the National Park Service (NPS). Features include an interactive “Rumble map”; audio descriptions of key features of the eclipse; a play-by-play description of the total solar eclipse as it is happening in the user’s area; and a countdown clock to the next upcoming eclipse.

The “Rumble Map” gives the user the sensation of “feeling” the Sun during an eclipse. Our technology translates images of key eclipse features into a series of unique frequency modulated tones that map out variations in light and dark as the user explores the image with their fingertips. These tones are specially designed to make the user’s mobile device shake, or rumble, in response to the changes.


Science Journal App
Science Journal

Science Journal is a tool for doing science with your phone, tablet, or Chromebook supporting Android apps. You can use the sensors in your phone or connect to external sensors to conduct experiments on the world around you.

Organize your ideas into projects, make predictions, take notes and collect data in multiple trials, then annotate and explore your results. It's the lab notebook you always have with you.

Sign up through Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or with your email address.
