The Great American Eclipse on August 21, 2017 captivated the hearts and minds of people across the country. Millions made travel plans years in advance to witness history take place. As Viliam Klein, a CU Boulder aerospace engineering doctoral student, watched the eclipse he reminisced about the long journey that led him to Jackson, Wyoming.

Many of us have seen past eclipse footage taken from airplanes. When Viliam first saw one such video, he wondered how he could use his prior experience launching balloons into the Earth's stratosphere to create a film of the eclipse shadow moving across the landscape below. Years later, his vision became reality when he launched a high-altitude helium-filled balloon that carried a GoPro Omni 360-degree six camera system to over 100,000 feet above the Earth. Funding for this project was provided by the Ann and H.J. Smead CU Aerospace Engineering Sciences department and CU’s Fiske Planetarium.

Fiske Planetarium invites you to experience Viliam's amazing adventure from concept to completion, follow the launch team on their 22-mile hike over rugged terrain in the Gros Ventre Wilderness to recover the footage and join us for an eclipse journey of a lifetime. Following the presentation, the launch team will participate in a question/answer session.
