GLOBE Mission Mosquito Spare Tire Blitz
How you can take part: Join the Mosquito Spare Tire Blitz! Between March and June, citizen scientists assist scientists like Dan Killingsworth (who is the Director of Operations for EnSec Pest Control, Pensacola, FL) by using GLOBE Observer to identify where tires are or could be used as breeding sites. Participants will document the mosquito tire habitat by submitting a photo using the Mosquito Habitat Mapper tool within the app and follow up with the Land Cover tool to provide photos of the tire location.  >>

Cloud Challenge 2022: Clouds in a Changing Climate
Did you know that clouds can both warm and cool our planet? Keeping an eye on clouds helps NASA study our climate. We need your help capturing data about clouds where you live! The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program invites you to take part in our upcoming Cloud Challenge: “Clouds in a Changing Climate.” There are two ways to contribute to this citizen science effort: (1) Submit your own cloud observations using The GLOBE Program’s GLOBE Observer app. (Remember to always be safe and follow local guidelines while observing.) If you can, try to make observations during satellite overpasses, and help us reach our goal of 20,000 satellite matches during the challenge! (2) You can also participate from the comfort of your home through NASA GLOBE CLOUD GAZE new window. Using this project on the Zooniverse online platform, you can identify cloud types and other phenomena in photos taken by GLOBE participants.  >>

NASA eClips Spotlite Video Challenge: Cloud Detectives
Fall registration is open for the NASA eClips Spotlight Video Challenge: Cloud Detectives! Submit videos by December 20. NASA wants your team of student content producers to produce a video for the NASA eClips  website.  One of NASA’s goals is to improve scientific literacy, or our understanding of science. The goal of the video challenge is to engage learners in doing activities that can help change their misconceptions about a topic in science. Each tab on the challenge website provides the information and resources needed to produce a NASA Spotlite video. A new Cloud Detectives challenge will be of particular interest to U.S. GLOBE schools. Student teams will produce a video (90 seconds to 2 minutes) confronting one of two misconceptions related to clouds, by investigating and collecting evidence, including GLOBE Clouds and NASA data. Learn more on the NASA eClips Spotlite Design Challenge website. Questions? Contact Joan Harper-Neely (Joan.Harper-Neely@nianet.org).  >>

Total Solar Eclipse in South America on 14 December 2020
The eclipse will pass across the southern part of South America, slightly further south than the path of the eclipse on 02 July 2019. This year’s eclipse will begin over the Pacific Ocean, and the lunar shadow will enter South America near Lago Budi, Chile and end near Las Grutas, Argentina. Outside this path, a partial solar eclipse will be visible in the rest of Chile and Argentina as well as Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay and parts of Ecuador, Peru, and Brazil.  >>
