Eclipse Soundscapes

Eclipse Soundscapes makes the eclipse accessible to people with visual impairments through audio descriptions.

Eclipse Soundscapes is a project that delivers a multisensory experience of the 2017 solar eclipse. The project, from NASA’s Heliophysics Education Consortium, will include audio descriptions of the eclipse in real time, recordings of the changing environmental sounds during the eclipse, and an interactive “rumble map” app that will allow users to visualize the eclipse through touch.

This project is a partnership between Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and the National Park Service.
