Be a part of a worldwide eclipse broadcast

Graham Jones of Global Communication and Science will present live coverage of the Total Solar Eclipse during a live streaming broadcast.

The five-hour live coverage will include telescope feeds, maps and animations, and interviews with people on the ground. The goal is to present the eclipse as a scientific and cultural event that will inspire tens of millions of people across the US and beyond.

Albany Visitors Association will participate in the broadcast and AVA Executive Director Jimmie Lucht will present real-time TSE reporting from the Willamette Valley.

Jones is a British astrophysicist and university teacher based in Japan. His Global Communications program focuses on solar eclipses as teachable moments to inspire young people around the world.

If you are planning to film or take photos of the eclipse, Global Communications would like to hear from you in advance of the big event so they can feature your footage in their eclipse live stream. Connect to their website for more information on how to submit your work.
