Feb 1, 2018 | Citizen Science

A total solar eclipse is seen on Monday, August 21, 2017 above Madras, Oregon. A total solar eclipse swept across a narrow portion of the contiguous United States from Lincoln Beach, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. A partial solar eclipse was visible across the entire North American continent along with parts of South America, Africa, and Europe. Photo Credit: (NASA/Aubrey Gemignani)

If you had an interesting experience last year observing the Eclipse, with us or elsewhere, and are interested in writing about it, we have an opportunity from the ASP!

The Astronomical Society of the Pacific is pleased to announce a new book to document and celebrate the efforts of professional astronomers, outreach professionals, citizen scientists, teachers, amateur astronomers, institutions, schools, and others who participated in the 2017 solar eclipse.

We welcome articles on the following topics (but not limited to) for inclusion:

  • Documentation of events
  • Description of support efforts
  • Resulting products
  • Lessons learned for outreach in general
  • Looking towards the 2024 Eclipse

Articles will be due to editors on May 31, for a final release of the volume in August.

Articles may be submitted in LaTeX or MS Word – you may consider a short article (4 – 6 pages) or longer article (10 – 12 pages) for inclusion.

Please complete this survey to indicate interest (not a commitment) by February 15.
ASP Eclipse Proceedings Survey

Details of submission will be sent to corresponding authors by the end of February.
