About this app

A total solar eclipse is among the most awe-inspiring events in nature, but few people have had the opportunity to experience one. Totality by Big Kid Science, a FREE educational app now owned by the nonprofit American Astronomical Society, aims to help change that by helping you learn about eclipses and find your way to upcoming eclipses around the world, including the 2023 annular and 2024 total eclipses that will pass across North America.

Totality, your solar-eclipse companion, is sponsored by the nonprofit American Astronomical Society. It’s awesome features include:

• An interactive map that shows exactly what you’ll see at any location in the world for upcoming annular and total solar eclipses, as well as a review of recent past eclipses. (Maps based on eclipse code graciously provided by Xavier Jubier.)
• Using your phone's GPS, the app will tell you what you'll see for these eclipses at your current location, as well as showing you the nearest locations where you can witness annularity or totality.
• The app offers navigation tools to help you find your best route to the path of totality.
• The Learn screen offers options that will help you learn how to view a solar eclipse safely, help you understand the science behind eclipses, and much more. It even includes a set of classroom activities.
• The Shop screen offers fantastic books about space and science (including a children’s book designed to accompany the app), eclipse glasses for safe viewing (which you can use to look at the Sun at any time, not just during an eclipse), and links to some of our favorite space education nonprofits.

And it's all absolutely free, including no ads, brought to you as a public service by Big Kid Science and the American Astronomical Society.

Totality by Big Kid Science is now available in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese (determined by the language setting on your device).

It's a bit late for a review to do you much good, but this app is (was) great. You could have found your house on a Google map and get excellent forecast of what you will see (could have seen) and when. Why the review? Because a great app like this deserves recognition for the developers. Yeah team!!

Totality saved the day! Throughout the day I was providing screenshots and directions to friends and relatives who lived along the path of totality. It was accurate right down the second. It worked flawlessly.
