Astronomy Club Witnesses Lunar Eclipse
11/23/2021

Astronomy Club Witnesses Lunar EclipseOn November 19, Dr. Paula Fekete and three members of the Astronomy Club woke up very early! There was a nearly total eclipse of the Moon. Humans have not seen a partial eclipse lasting this long (6 hours and 2 minutes) since 1440, and they won’t see another one this long again until 2669. The rarity of such an event is due to three factors:
1. The Moon must be at apogee: a micromoon, i.e., located furthest from Earth, moving at its slowest rate.
2. The Earth must be near aphelion (furthest from the Sun) when the Earth casts a “straighter” shadow onto the Moon.
3. The Sun-Earth-Moon alignment must be almost perfect.
The eclipse was nearly total: a 0.974 fraction of the Moon’s diameter, and 99.1% of the Moon’s area was covered by Earth’s umbra. They began watching it around 0345 as the maximum occurred at 0402 when the picture was taken. CDT Jacob Willis took the image of the Moon ’23 (CIC of the Astronomy Club) assisted by CDT Jaxon Porter ‘23 and CDT Ramsey Rouabhia ‘22. There are 137 Extracurricular Clubs, each contributing to leader development within the Corps of Cadets and made possible by your support. Thank you!

10/5/2021

Q&A with Football’s Cole TalleyQ: Why did you decide to attend West Point?

CT: My girlfriend's dad and my uncle both went to the Naval Academy, and they spoke positively about their experiences at Service Academies. Then I came up here for a visit, and I was here for a camp over the summer. It was really fun, and I liked the campus and the coaches. It was absolutely the best opportunity I had.

Q: Aside from football, what's been your favorite part of West Point?

CT: One hundred percent meeting all the people that I've met here. Sometimes I think to myself if I went to a different school, not the Academy, I wonder what would have happened. I feel like this place has made me grow as an individual and as a man through all the people that I've met. I wouldn't be anywhere without them, especially the guys on the team.

Q: What's been your favorite non-football memory at the Academy?

CT: The summers here. Because we're taking summer classes, we spend the summer up here and it's so fun. We take trips to New York City. It's nice to be up here and be secluded because it helps us build relationships. Read more.

Women’s Cross Country Post Strong Result at Paul Short RunThe Army West Point Women’s Cross Country Team put in a strong performance en route to a seventh place finish at the 47th Paul Short Run for the program's best finish since 1997. The Black Knights had a score of 302 with a total time of 1:45.49 (21:10 avg) to place in seventh, ahead of rival Navy. Army also finished ahead of George Washington, Boston University, and La Salle who all are ranked in their respective regional polls.

Georgia Jones, who was tabbed as this week's Patriot League Female Runner of the Week, set a program-best time at a 6K race with a time of 20:14.6 to place ninth out of 342 runners. Classmate Helen Shearer was close by with a personal record time of 20:28.5 which was good enough for 18th. Army was one of four schools to place two runners in the top-20 (Northern Arizona, Villanova, Georgetown).

This was probably the best women's team performance we have ever had at this meet. It is annually a crucible of competitive talent with some of the best teams in the country lining up to see where they stack up nationally. In each race, almost 400 people representing 40 teams to the starting line, and when the gun goes off it is a massive crush of people all running to their limit. For us to finish 7th in that field is as significant a team performance as I can remember. We normally hope to be in the top 20 so this is something pretty special. Read more.

Men’s Cross Country at Paul Short Run

Men’s Cross Country at Paul Short RunThe Black Knights had another top-10 finish at the annual Paul Short Run. Army finished ahead of rival Navy, as well as programs like La Salle, William and Mary, and Binghamton who are ranked in their regional polls.

The Black Knights, who soared up the regional rankings to seventh this week, had a score of 298 with a total time of 2:02.13 (24:27 avg). Mitchell Burr led Army with a personal-record time of 24:19.5 to place in 50th. Marshall Beatty, the reigning Patriot League Male Runner of the Week, was second on the team with a time of 24:23.8. Robert Chappell (24:25.2) and Thomas Vo (24:26.9) followed with personal record times.

“We ran a great team race today. We didn't have all of our guys perform at their best, but just enough of them ran to their potential for us to finish as well as we did. We beat some quality opponents. Going into the meet, I felt that a top 5 finish would be extraordinary and a top 10 finish would be a strong performance. The top 5 teams today were all ranked teams and in a 40-team field, there are always a few unknown teams that can sneak in and shake things up. We got out well into the race and our pack stuck together deep into the race. We finished with an 18-second spread from our number 1 to our number 5 which is probably the best spread we have had in a number of years. That kind of discipline can make a big difference in the team score of a meet with 300-400 runners.” Read more.
