Total Solar Eclipse 2017

Our tools for eclipse watching

The kids and I enjoyed watching the solar eclipse today.  We went outside for periods to check it out and document the progress of the eclipse.  We experienced 65%, not full totality but it was pretty neat.  It was actually a cooler experience than I anticipated.

B watching the eclipse

 B grabbed her Science notebook and logged a page about the eclipse.

 D checking on the eclipse.

 I loved the patterns formed in our driveway, like many bananas.

 E setting up the viewer

 Even F had a good time

Watching the eclipse

I hope wherever you are that you had a moment to enjoy the eclipse.  If not, the next total solar eclipse is due to take place April 8, 2024.
