Jul 27, 2017

In this episode, Dave talks to filmmaker Mark Bender. His documentary, Eclipse Across America, was produced for and is airing on CuriosityStream. Mark is a veteran eclipse chaser and documentary filmmaker. The film, in four parts, traces the path of the eclipse across the United States and features some of the most scenic and interesting spots that will be in or very near the path of totality. Bender talks about his use of the latest lightweight 4K HD cameras and drones that were used to produce the spectacular film and about the project that will enlist an army of citizen scientists to create a 90 minute long look at the Sun's Corona during the eclipse.
