This message is a bit late as the eclipse has already officially begun
in Seattle, but if you're interested in following along nonvisually,
there is a great iPhone app. Search Eclipse Soundscapes. Download the
app. There are great tutorial instructions on how to view the content.
A sonic and haptic map will update in realtime based on your location
as the eclipse progresses. The map shows the sun and how the moon is
moving across it; sound and haptic feedback increases as you touch
parts of your phone screen where of light is visible, and sound and
haptic intensity increase as more light is visible. 92% coverage in
Seattle will happen at 10:20 so step outside!
