Undergraduate students are invited to become eclipse ambassadors and help prepare their communities for a pair of exciting celestial events! Two solar eclipses will soon cross North America: an annular solar eclipse on 14 October 2023 and a total solar eclipse on 8 April 2024. Nearly the entire continent will have partial solar eclipses both days.

College students will be partnered with amateur astronomers and trained as eclipse ambassadors to bring NASA science and the cultural connections of solar eclipses to their communities. Working with libraries and other partners, we hope to reach 500 communities across the country, with emphasis on traditionally underserved audiences. Join us to learn new skills, make connections, and share your love of science with the public! 

Undergraduates: Please help us better serve future eclipse ambassadors. Take 5 minutes to answer some questions and qualify for one of five $20 Target gift cards! Deadline: 30 April 2022.
