As part of this project, NASA solar scientist Mitzi Adams and Holy Spirit School teacher Elizabeth Simmons travelled to Zambia, Africa to view the first total solar eclipse of the new millennium. They shared their experiences with Girl Scouts in the Southeastern United States through a live webcast, complete with temperature data and a phone conference during the event. Participants included Girl Scouts from Alabama, Georgia, and Kentucky. If you are interested in the solar eclipse adventure or would like to earn the Eclipses and the Sun pin, check out the links below.
