Eclipse Explorer Mobile

Contains Ads

Your all-in-one app for the Great American Eclipse of 2017!

Eclipse Explorer is a free astronomical app that allows you to view the circumstances for solar eclipses that occur between 1900 and 2100 using your GPS defined location. It uniquely features countdown timers to eclipse events at your specific location, simulates the position of the Sun and Moon, and draws the location of the Moon's shadow on the Earth in real-time. You may also lookup circumstances for locations around the world.

A solar eclipse is one of nature's most amazing spectacles, however, clouds can ruin your day. Use this app to overlay satellite and radar data on the day of the eclipse to make sure you stay within the path of totality and away from the clouds!

Find out exactly when the eclipse starts and finishes for your location with countdown timers.

Be ready for the total eclipse in August of 2017!
