Totality by Big Kid Science
By Germinate LLC
Description: Ready for the next total solar eclipse? The 2017 eclipse is behind us, but you can use the FREE app, Totality by Big Kid Science, to learn about eclipses and view interactive maps for upcoming eclipses. The awesome features include:
- Use an interactive map to learn exactly what you’ll see at any location in the world for the next 5 total solar eclipses, including next USA eclipse on April 8, 2024. (Maps based on eclipse code by Xavier Jubier.)
- The app uses your GPS to show you what you'll see at your current location, as well as showing you the the nearest locations where you can witness TOTALITY.
- For the 2024 eclipse, the app even offers navigation tools to help you find your best route to the path of Totality.
- The Learn screen offers option that will help you learn how, when, and why eclipses occur, as well as classroom activities, links to maps for upcoming solar and lunar eclipses through 2030 (and in some cased beyond), and more.
- The Shop screen offers fantastic books about space and science, and links to some of our favorite space education non-profits.
- Note: Although produced before the 2017 eclipse, you'll learn more about the app by watching the app preview video below, reading this Huff Post blog about the app, or the article on p. 29 of the first issue of the new Popular Astronomy digital magazine. Also watch for app updates as we optimize it for the upcoming eclipses.
