Eclipse Soundscapes Project


On August 21, 2017, millions of people will viewed a total solar eclipse as it passed through the United States. However, for the visually impaired, or others who were unable to see the eclipse with their own eyes, the Eclipse Soundscapes Project delivered a multisensory experience of this exciting celestial event. The project, from NASA’s Heliophysics Education Consortium and the Smithsonian Astrophysics Observatory, included audio descriptions of the eclipse delivered in real time, recordings of the changing environmental sounds during the eclipse, and an interactive “rumble map” app that allowed users to visualize the eclipse through touch.

Kelsey served as the web content writer, social media coordinator, email marketing, and public relations lead for this project.
