App allows people to record observations during total solar eclipse

The Four-State area will see around 80 percent of the eclipse

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Md. - We're 10 days out from a total solar eclipse, and NASA is looking for people's help in documenting this astronomical rarity.
 
An app called GLOBE Observer gives the public the opportunity to participate in data collection.
 
NASA said the upcoming total solar eclipse has the possibility to be the largest citizen-earth science project ever completed.
 
Even people outside the path of totality are encouraged to log observations.
 
"We're seeking help from everyone to sort of be a NASA scientist for a day to help us record clouds and temperature as that shadow moves across the country,” said Dr. Alex Young, Associate Director for Science, Heliophysics Science Division.
 
The Four-State area will see around 80 percent of the eclipse.
