Recapturing childhood fascinations

I didn't even care or notice about the eclipse that's going to happen on 21 August and then a friend of mine mentioned this application on the Facebook…

I figured well? Why not give it a try? And I've played with it for a little bit and this is the coolest thing I've seen in a while! I recommended it to my friends even though all of them have normal eyesight… I'm actually excited now and plan to go and see what there is to see on Monday

I like reading the descriptions of things and the rumble map is really neat… I can see a very small bit and the rumble map and descriptions have brought this whole eclipse thing to my level it really is cool and it makes me feel like a kid again because when I was younger I was absolutely bonkers for the solar system and outerspace

Post-eclipse feels

First of all, the concept and design of this app are overwhelmingly outstanding. It was thoughtful, and the descriptions are beautiful and detailed. I got my notification at the start of eclipse, and heard the first message, but either something malfunctioned then or I didn't understand what it was telling me. No rumble map came up at any point, besides the ones that came stock under the tab that previously existed. Even without a map of what was currently happening it was a great boost to the experience for me. I can only hope this is here for us again in the future.

Amazing and informative

I've always been curious about astronomy and meteorology. I experienced the audio descriptions during totality and very much appreciated them. I'm looking forward to future ezplorations! I think my favorite rumble-map feature is the diamond ring. :-D Thanks so much for this project!
