Merit Badge: Galileo Expert Astronomer

stargazer11Participate in a sanctioned stargazing event, and you’ll earn a participation badge, one for each one you participate in. Earn 5 participation badges for your Astronomy Merit Badge and a bonus 100 Karma points. If you earn an additional 5 stargazing participation badges, you will earn your Expert Astronomer Merit Badge and a bonus 250 points. The Galileo Badge will earn 500 bonus points.

NOTE: Events are not specific to individual badges. For example, if you observe event A, miss events B and C, but then observe event D, you earn stargazer1 and stargazer 2 badges. The next event you observe — even if you miss the next ten — will earn you the stargazer 3 badge. Astronomy opportunities are announced throughout the year, and it is expected that you will not be able to participate in every one, due to weather, geo location or timing.
