The solar eclipse proved to be a national event and Geoff Livingston, CMO and Co-Founder of LegendsofLearning.com, was part of this once-in-a-lifetime happening as, for many, the next total solar eclipse in the U.S. will be in 2024, and the next coast-to-coast one will not be until 2045.
Livingston told Capitol Communicator that the Legends of Learning team, which is based in the D.C. area, traveled to Clemson University in South Carolina with a class of Cobb County science students to see the solar eclipse. The effort, said Livingston, “was part of a larger program to promote our Eclipses and Seasons games, content created for middle school science classes.
“To photograph it, we set up a Nikon D810 with a Nikkor 200-500 mm f5.6 lens and a solar filter sheet taped on the end of it. It worked very well, and the photos were even picked up by Nikon Rumors. In addition, the students loved watching the “ring of fire” on the live view screen, in essence using it as a telescope.
“The program went well over the past week, making it our most successful content marketing program to date – though the company is young. If you haven’t checked us out yet, please do! We’re a DC Edtech start up.”
