2017 Total Solar Eclipse Phone Apps
Just in time for the August 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse
Take The Guesswork out of Total Solar Eclipse Observing
2017 Total Solar Eclipse Phone Apps
Foxwood Astronomy announces the launch of three smart phone applications, available on the iTunes App Store. Designed by eclipse chasers for eclipse chasers, these apps will help novice observers learn about total solar eclipses, understand what is happening, prepare their observation and photography plans and most importantly, enjoy the beauty of one of nature’s most spectacular events.
On August 21, 2017, millions of people from all over the world will converge into the path of totality. As the moons shadow sweeps the nation from coast to coast, first time observers as well as experienced eclipse chasers will be hoping for the rare opportunity to witness this amazing celestial event. A couple of other apps offer assistance to get you in the path of totality, but Solar Eclipse Timer is the only app that provides precise timing with audible announcements and tones so that you do not miss anything during this magical event. Many will join Tropical Sails Corp on one of its’ many tours.
2017 Total Solar Eclipse Timer, the only “talking timer”, transforms novice eclipse observers into prepared eclipse guides. Here are a few of the helpful features included:
- – auto loading GPS geo-location helps you insure that you are in the path of totality
- – contact times are automatically calculated for your current location
- – audible announcements remind you to observe for interesting phenomena during the partial phases
- – count down announcements and audible tones help you mark contact times and max eclipse
- – a demo program, which includes an actual total solar eclipse video, is a great tool to use to practice your photography plan
- – partial phase image sequences calculator helps you know when to snap the shots to create your equally spaced Partial Phase Sequence Compilation, just like the pros do it.
Complex enough for experienced eclipse chasers – simple enough for first time observers. $1.99
