Dubois eclipse work complete

Sep 17, 2017 From staff reports

A team of experts from Google and University of California Berkeley decided that Dubois was the place to be for the days surrounding this year's much celebrated Great American Eclipse.

Their objective: Create the Eclipse Megamovie in collaboration with 1,300 citizen scientists across the nation and the other half of their team at Google Headquarters in Mountain View, Calif.

The outcome was the assembly of 34,000 images, creating acontinuous view of the eclipse's totalityas it passed from the West Coast to East Coast of the entire continental U.S. This is the first time totality has ever been recorded and compiled over an extended period of time and across locations. It is now complete and ready for viewing at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNER8is81g0.

While in Wyoming's Wind River Country, the crew also filmed a second video: "Chasing Totality: Making the 2017 Eclipse Megamovie."

The 15-minute video heavily features Dubois and the Google and UC Berkeley team's stay there, from footage of the area's unique and dramatic scenery and the town overlook during the eclipse to an interview with Dubois Mayor Twila Blakeman and eclipse event organizer Jeda Higgs.
