NASA has just launched a new application that will allow you to help play a part in science for the solar eclipse on August 21st. The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment, also known as GLOBE, is a way for citizens to help collect data on clouds and air temperature. NASA wants to engage as many citizens in being a part of the eclipse no matter the weather that day.

In a new project that will be launched in August, NASA is hoping to collect more data that will help analyze key questions scientists have about hurricanes. The Global Hawk, which is an unmanned aircraft, will be sent up over tropical storms in the Eastern Pacific to collect data that will help scientists better understand how these storms intensify and progress over time.
Great visualization by NASA on happens when glaciers begin to melt.
Fort Wayne is not in the “path of totality,” but we will still be able to see a partial eclipse.
