The total solar eclipse today seems to be having a global impact on Ingress Scanners. We are unsure what is causing it but have verified that the effect seems to have increased the amount of AP that can be earned. However, this reward does not seem stable. We have measured that Agents will be able to earn around double the normal AP for a limited time and that it will deminish to slightly more than one and a half the normal AP for roughly the next 24 hours or so.

We ask that all Agents help us measure the effects of the eclipse and report back their findings via social media and the hashtag #IngressEclipse so that we can determine the impact of these events.
