I learned so many cool things about the eclipse. I learned that the moon blocks the sun even though the moon is so small. The eclipse only lasts for about seven and a half minutes. It only lasts for seven and a half minutes because the moon is going fourteen thousand miles per hour. It also blinds you, even the smallest amount of light. The Great American Solar Eclipse only comes every ninety-nine years.

The solar eclipse was on Monday, August 21, 2017. I was able to see the eclipse at school through special glasses our teachers let us use. Some of my friends were able to wear helmets that let them safely look at the eclipse. Before we had our glasses on we had to look at the ground coming from lunch to protect our eyes. I think that the solar eclipse was very cool and I enjoyed looking at it. With the glasses I could see the moon in front of the sun. The next solar eclipse for North America will come on April 8,2024.

The eclipse was very cool. I thought it was cool that the last total eclipse was almost 100 years ago! It was my first time seeing a total eclipse. When I looked at it, it looked like a crescent. We had a long line going down the hall to see it! I can't wait to see another one.

The lunar eclipse is a rare breath-taking event. The moon blocks the sun from part of the Earth. To see the eclipse you need Nasa's glasses or a welding helmet to see the eclipse. The eclipse is really awesome to look at. The eclipse that is most important is the American Solar Eclipse.
