The troop was able to record the eclipse from the drone. Launched above the trees just before totality, the video shows dramatic lighting changes to landscape to the west. We were less than 5 miles from the center totality line, in the mountains north High Valley Idaho. The campout was a blast with the day before flying the drone, plant identification activity, games, wonderful food, worked on the BSA eclipse award, and ended the event with eclipse 2017.
Sage has earned Eagle Scout rank. His write up has been approved. Congratulations!
The troop will be heading up to Art’s cabin for the eclipse. Group one will head out Saturday with the Pack. Group two will be heading out Sunday. A bunch of activities are planned for the weekend. Our camp site is less than 5 miles from the line of totality – very close. The location by NASA will have around 2 minutes and 9 seconds of totality. And, we will working on the BSA eclipse award.
