On April 8th, 2024 a total solar eclipse will be crossing the United States. In an exciting new program, Undergraduate Students and Eclipse Enthusiasts have been partnered to engage their local communities off the path of totality, providing solar viewing glasses as well as context for underserved communities. 

Eclipse Ambassadors have received everything they need to get the word out to their communities before the 2024 eclipse - virtual training, resources including glasses, partnerships and a supportive community of eclipse enthusiasts. As of February 14, 2024, our Eclipse Ambassadors have engaged 50,000 individuals, spanning across 40 states and territories as part of one of the largest science initiatives for 2024!

View our current map of participants, and stay tuned for more information about the overall reach of this NASA partnership, and the communities we have impacted. 

Please note: The application process is now closed as of February 14, 2024. Thank you for your interest.
