28 Feb: The Eclipse Megamovie Project is an opportunity from the Astronomical Society of the Pacific (ASP) for planetarians to contribute to a citizen science project. ASP is looking for planetariums to participate in this initiative, asking for photographs of the upcoming August 21st total solar eclipse to build a movie of images from coast to coast and support solar science. The final movie will be freely available to planetariums and the general public. Participant team members receive training and submit a practice image before the eclipse and will be included in the credits of the final Eclipse Megamovie for qualifying submissions. To participate visit and sign up to take part. Photographers will need a DSLR camera with a telephoto or zoom lens with a focal length of 300mm, a stable tripod, and a way to identify GPS coordinates to the nearest second. For more information, contact Brian Kruse ( at ASP.
