NOAO - The Citizen Cate Project

From Aug 13, 2016. Description: On August 21st, 2017, the United States will experience a total solar eclipse on a path crossing the country from Oregon to South Carolina. This eclipse presents a rare opportunity to study the Sun’s inner corona. The Citizen Continental-American Telescopic Eclipse Experiment (Citizen CATE) will station 60 telescopes across the country to capture a continuous, uninterrupted movie of the Sun’s corona during totality. Four Research Experience For Undergraduates (REU) students have spent the summer at the National Solar Observatory in Tucson analyzing date from telescope tests done in Indonesia during the March 9th, 2016 total solar eclipse in Indonesia and preparing for the 2017 total solar eclipse.
