GLOBE Eclipse Data
Before major solar eclipses, GLOBE Observer adds a special limited time tool to the app to allow citizen scientists observers to submit air temperature data in addition to the usual data types available. For more information about the eclipse tool, please visit the Eclipse area of the Do GLOBE Observer section.
Current eclipse data sets available (clouds and air temperature):
- August 21, 2017 (path of totality over North America)
- July 2, 2019 (path of totality over South America)
