The Eclipse Soundscapes Project is a NASA Citizen Science project funded by NASA Science Activation that is studying how eclipses affect life on Earth during the October 14, 2023 annular solar eclipse and the April 8, 2024 total solar eclipse. Eclipse Soundscapes will revisit an eclipse study from almost 100 years ago that showed that animals and insects are affected by solar eclipses! Like this study from 100 years ago, ES will ask for the public’s help. ES will also use modern technology to continue to study how solar eclipses affect life on Earth!
The Eclipse Soundscapes Project needs your help! ES is collecting your multi-sensory observations and recorded sound data from the April 8, 2024 total solar eclipse. The observations and sound data collected will help us understand the impact of solar eclipses on various U.S. ecosystems.
