Mom, who turned out the lights? We will learn about the Solar eclipse at the Scout meeting tomorrow
The lights are going off a week from tomorrow. All across the USA, millions of people will experience a full Solar Eclipse of the sun. The last solar eclipse in this area was 1979, and the last solar eclipse that could be viewed all over the US was in 1918. To an experience an eclipse is a rare event in your lifetime.
Troop 26 will be going to Camp Buffalo Bill in Wyoming to get a better view of the eclipse. In preparation (and for those of you that can’t join us), we will be learning about this astronomical phenomena at our Scout meeting tomorrow evening, 7pm at the Black Eagle Community Center.
Please bring a shoebox and a yardstick to the meeting for some of our activities. We will be building an eclipse viewer and modeling the eclipse.
See you tomorrow evening!
Yours in Scouting,
Assistant Scoutmaster, Troop 1026, Great Falls, MT
