How to earn the BSA Total Solar Eclipse 2024 EmblemEarning the 2024 patch is easy and fun. It could make a great activity for a den meeting, pack meeting, Scouts BSA meeting, family outing … and everything in between.Locate a site suitable for viewing the eclipse. There are lots of good sources out there, but I’m partial to NASA’s official site, which lists all the major cities over which the eclipse will cross, with the exact times that Scouts and families need to be ready.Describe how to safely view the eclipse. It is not safe to look directly at the sun without specialized eye protection for solar viewing. This includes looking at it through binoculars, a telescope or your phone’s camera. Solar viewing glasses are thousands of times darker than regular sunglasses. Look for solar viewing glasses that comply with the ISO 12312-2 international standard. You can also safely view an eclipse using an indirect viewing method, such as Scout Life’s shoebox viewer.Discuss with your group what you saw and felt during the eclipse. A total solar eclipse happens when the moon passes between the sun and Earth. Depending on how close you are to the path of totality, you may see the sky darken considerably. Depending on the weather, you could see stars, as if it were nighttime. In some instances, night creatures might even come out.Do the following:• Cub Scouts: Discuss what a solar eclipse is with your leaders.• Scouts BSA members: Draw a diagram of the positions of the moon, Earth and sun to show how the solar eclipse occurs.• Venturers and Sea Scouts: Research Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington’s 1919 experiment and discuss how it confirmed Einstein’s theory of general relativity.Ask your unit leader to purchase the BSA Total Solar Eclipse 2024 Emblem! Scout Shop is also offering a glow-in-the-dark patch set and a nifty looking glow-in-the-dark T-shirt, if you really want to go all out. (How cool would it be if a group of Scouts all wore that glow-in-the-dark shirt at a public viewing event in their community?!?) ... See MoreSee Less
