The Great American Eclipse Archive

The ALPO Solar Section has setup a folder in its archive for images made during the Great American Eclipse on August 21, 2017. The folder is a sub-folder in Carrington Rotation 2194 and can also be found at the following URL: .
Any observer who has made an image of the event, be it the total eclipse, or partial, can submit the image(s) to ALPO by emailing it to: . We are asking that the images are identified with the observer’s name, the exact time in Universal Time, and location, from where the image was taken. Staff will upload the images into the archive where they are available for analysis. Please note that the size of the images is limited to <2500 pixels wide and we prefer images in the 200k – 300kB file size. However, larger images are also accepted. We hope that many will make use of this option to document the Great American Eclipse of 2017!
