The results of a survey representing the reactions and responses of 29,095 individuals across the USA who witnessed the eclipse or participated in eclipse-related events on or around August 21, 2017, are reported. The surveys collect a body of data showing the demographics of these respondents and an analysis of the responses they gave in terms of motivations for participation, learning, future plans as a result of the event, and in summarizing the overall experience. Conclusions show future efforts at similar events could be directed to broaden participation and increase engagement.
