I'm going on a road trip to see the eclipse and wanted something to point me toward the path of totality. So I wrote an app. This is that app.
I hope it is fun and useful for you too!
Improved distance accuracy and readability.
The arrow will turn green and a tone will sound when you enter the path of totality.
Ratings and Reviews
This app saved my experience
Years I planned to go to Carbondale Illinois. NASA was there, Neil Degrasse Tyson mentioned the town, Washington Post, NY Times, USA Today, everyone said to to Carbondale.
I got down there and met traffic the day of the Eclipse earlier this week. I opened the app because I wanted to see the arrow pointing forward. When it loaded it pointed behind me. Unable to go forward I turned around and got within yards of the exact path in some family's yard (for a small fee).
The whole experience was amazing. I saw the full 2:40 of Totality in an experience that I'll never forget. Everyone there loved my telescope with a strong solar filter and the DeLorean I brought it in. Later I heard Carbondale got 10 seconds of Totality due to cloud coverage. I would have only gotten ten seconds of the amazing event had I not opened this app, which thankfully worked without any signal.
Thank you for making this app. It saved the day.
What can you say?
This is the future. This app is a real treat. Perhaps a gift in the name of science from an altruistic developer. Either way it does just about everything you could realistically want / expect while doing absolutely NOTHING to hinder, annoy, or pester you. A first class experience and utility for the low cost of an optional tip.
App for other eclipses
Will other apps be done for future eclipses? This one helped me a lot for the 2017 eclipse. Thank you so much for coding it!
