Snapchat users who think to open up the social app while witnessing Monday’s eclipse will get to share their experiences with the help of a handful of features available along the total solar eclipse’s path.
The company said special eclipse geofilters can be added to Snaps sent from various locations across the U.S., including some filters that are specific to people along the path of totality. Also, there will be a dozen new eclipse stickers ready to be added to Snaps and users’ Story streams.
Snapchat will also be using, for the first time ever, an Actionmoji to represent people who can see the eclipse on its Snap Map. This feature will only be visible for users who have opted to share their locations with Snap Map. Additionally, only user’s friends will be able to view the Actionmoji’s location.

For those who aren’t going to have a view of the eclipse due to cloudy weather or just being nowhere near the path of totality, Snapchat invites you to watch its curated story made up of Snapchatters’ submissions. The company said the “Total Solar Eclipse” Our Story would be updated over the course of two days and viewable through Snapchat’s Discover platform.
