The Smithsonian Solar Eclipse App Features a NASA Live Stream

The Smithsonian solar eclipse app is a complete and free guide to the August 21st solar eclipse.

Using data from the 'Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory' and a live stream on the day of the eclipse from NASA, users have access to all the resources necessary for a safe and complete viewing experience. The SAO has been conducting solar research since 1890, including data collection on solar radiation and the solar constant. Its telescopes and instruments send back high resolution images of the Sun to help study its features, solar weather and solar atmosphere is energized.

For the event, the Smithsonian solar eclipse app will include resources like a safety guide, interactive eclipse map, an eclipse live stream and eclipse countdown. Users can also track the shadow of the moon and simulate the eclipse from any location on Earth.
