Solar eclipse viewing

Hello Troop 349

This Monday the 21st the sun will be approx 75% blocked by the moon. Troop 349 is having a viewing event outside the Nesconset library/Armory from 1:30 – 3:30. The 75% coverage happens at approx 2:40. Please bring snacks and Nalgenes.

Each scout is responsible for obtaining their own solar viewing glasses. If you’d like to make a viewer out of a shoe box and a few other simple materials please bring a shoe box to the event. We will make the viewer there.I have attached a link to the box to this email too.

If there are any adults who are available to attend please let Mr Merchant know so that we have enough adults to help out with this event.If you have a telescope or binoculars with solar filter please bring them to the eclipse too.
