Patch details: 2.50 inch patch 100% embroidered. GLOW IN THE DARK THREADS

The eclipse on Monday, April 8, 2024, will be a total solar eclipse. It will be the last total solar eclipse visible from the contiguous United States until 2044. It is only safe to remove your eclipse glasses during what’s known as totality, the brief period of time when the Moon is completely blocking the Sun.

Observers viewing the eclipse from outside the path of totality may observe a partial eclipse, where the Moon covers most but not all of the Sun. Eclipse glasses are required for the entire duration of the eclipse when viewing from outside the path of totality.

Complete one requirement to earn the patch. (please note some of the below links will take you to another site)

5. Find out more about one of the states the eclipse will be cross over. Where is located? Is it near you? What is the state flower or capital? Fifty states
6. During a solar eclipse (moon blocking the sun) it is very tempting to look directly at this event, doing so usually results in eye damage. Learn about the safety of viewing the eclipse. The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed Sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses” or hand-held solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the Sun.Safety Information from NASA

5. Attend an event or facility that has safe ways for you to view the eclipse or see pictures afterwards. Many libraries, planetariums, and museums have free or reasonable priced safety glasses available. Most importantly be safe while you are observing the eclipse.
