dc.description.abstractThroughout the spring and summer of 2017, the Citizen CATE (Continental- America Telescopic Eclipse) Experiment was active in Wyoming and across the contiguous United States, with the goal of achieving an unbroken line of citizen- operated telescopes and cameras along the path of totality for the August eclipse. Eleven sites were active in Wyoming, composed of teachers, students, amateur and professional astronomers, and interested members of the community. In two large educational sessions, as well as several localized practice events, these groups were trained to use the telescopes and cameras provided for them. Working closely with the National Solar Observatory, a team out of the University of Wyoming helped to educate the Wyoming CATE teams, as well as follow through with them to gather numerous practice data sets and update their equipment whenever necessary over the course of that summer. All teams were successfully able to gather data during the eclipse on August 21st, 2017, and submitted their images to be compiled into a larger, 90-minute film of the entirety of totality. Scientists at the NSO are continuing to assemble the video, with the goal of having the film completed by late 2018 or early 2019.
