Tape the Eclipse for Fun and Science
« on: August 12, 2017, 12:05:30 AM »
Tapers needed to participate in a citizen science project related to the upcoming solar eclipse on August 21 – the Eclipse Soundscapes Project!

You don’t have to be in the path of totality to participate.

Full details can be found here:  http://eclipsesoundscapes.org/blog/record-eclipse-soundscape

Eclipse Soundscapes is “working with partners at the National Park Service and Brigham Young University, Idaho to capture changes in soundscapes as the Moon passes between the Earth and Sun…[As] citizen scientists [you] can take [your] own recordings and share them with us on our free, open source database at eclipsesoundscapes.org. In doing so, we hope to learn something about how animals — and humans, too — react to the awe and wonder or a solar eclipse.”

For information on how to record and submit an eclipse soundscape, see: http://eclipsesoundscapes.org/citizen-science

To view a simulator of how and when the eclipse will appear in your location, see: https://eclipsemega.movie/ simulator

Get to an area where there are a lot of birds singing, they go quiet, it's pretty cool!

Cool - thanks for the heads up.   I'm lucky enough to live in the path of totality so I'll have to do this.
