Fulldome Eclipse Animations from Rice University

With the Great American Eclipse of 2017 fast approaching, many planetariums are looking for content elements to use in local programming about eclipses. Rice University, supported by a grant from NASA’s Heliophysics Education Consortium, has developed a collection of fulldome eclipse visualizations from a variety of perspectives which can help audiences better understand the spatial relationship between the Sun, the Moon, and the Earth during a solar eclipse.

Here’s a sample:

 

For the convenience of SciDome users, Spitz has rendered these visualizations into the proper media formats and codecs for SciDome systems.
