How to earn the BSA 2017 Solar Eclipse Patch

Here’s how to earn the BSA 2017 Solar Eclipse Patch

June 27, 2017 Bryan Wendell STEM 57

On Aug. 21, 2017, the solar system serves up a special treat: a total solar eclipse. Like all the best celebrations, this one comes with its own patch.

Source: How to earn the BSA 2017 Solar Eclipse patch

A total solar eclipse is a rare event. A total solar eclipse whose path crosses right over the heart of the United States? Even rarer.

On Aug. 21, 2017, the solar system serves up a special treat. Aug. 21 is a Monday, but those Scouts and Venturers who are still on summer break should plan a big celebration. Like all the best celebrations, this one comes with its own patch.

There won’t be another total solar eclipse over the United States until 2024. After that, you must wait until 2045. In other words, when Aug. 21 arrives, make sure you’re ready.

How to earn the BSA 2017 Solar Eclipse patch

Locate a site suitable for viewing the eclipse. Search Google for “eclipse viewing” and the name of your city or town to find events near you.
See the exact path and precise timings at this NASA site.
Describe how to safely view the eclipse.
Never look directly at the sun. Instead, look directly at these tips from NASA on how to view the eclipse safely.
Discuss with your group what you saw and felt during the eclipse.
Post your comments and eclipse photos on social media using the hashtag #BSAEclipse2017.
Do the following:
Cub Scouts: Discuss what a solar eclipse is with your leaders.
Boy Scouts and Varsity Scouts: Draw a diagram of the positions of the moon, earth, and sun to show how the solar eclipse occurs.
Venturers: Research Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington’s 1919 experiment and discuss how it confirmed Einstein’s theory of general relativity.
Ask your unit leader to buy the 2017 Solar Eclipse patch.
You’ll find it at your local council service center.

Yawgoog last thoughts

Trailer pack up this morning at the McCarthy’s. 5 Short Ct Nesconset. Please bring your duffel bag, any forms, and questions between 10am & noon today 7/8. Please bring your uniform on a hanger so the leadership scouts can inspect them & make sure they are on a hanger & NOT in your bag. You will need your uniform and a hanger at camp for every dinner meal.

This year’s theme at Yawgoog is Medieval. Pack any items that may go with this theme.

Meet at Orient Point ferry at noon tomorrow. Bring a bag lunch or pick up something at their snack shack. Sunscreen is a great idea while we are waiting out there too.

Day pack for tomorrow’s ferry ride. Bring a Nalgene and snack for the ride.

Yawgoog here we come!!!!!!!!!!!!

Adam Shank Thanks you

Troop 349,

I, Adam Shank, would like to thank those who came and supported my car wash last Saturday. It was, despite the unpleasant weather (and fierce competition at the firehouse), moderately successful. Thanks again to all the families & scouts who participated.
