Monday, Apr. 8 at 1:28 pm students leave their seventh-hour class to gather on the football field and watch their second solar eclipse. During the first eclipse in 2017, students witnessed full totality, meaning they were able to watch as day turned shortly into night and were able to look directly at the sun without it affecting their eyes. This time the eclipse could only be seen through eclipse glasses due to the area only being able to see roughly 83% totality. “I liked watching the eclipse this year because it was a new perspective. It shows the beauty of imperfect things. The sun and moon rarely overlap each other but in doing so they create something fascinating,” junior Addyson Alderman said.
