The Solar Eclipse happened on August 21, 2017. It was amazing, some places in the United States went fully dark. But unfortunately, in San Marino, we did not get the full experience. Teachers helped students create pinhole projectors, with these, you wouldn’t hurt you eyes when seeing the solar eclipse. During the solar eclipse, the temperature dropped at least 4 degrees. Solar eclipses are a very rare events that only happen on Earth every 7 years or so. The next solar eclipse will happen at April 8, 2024.

This solar eclipse happened from Oregon to South carolina, and the next one will happen from Mexico to New York. Even though the solar eclipse is very beautiful, at the same time, it can do some really hurtful things to your eyes, and it could make you blind. Solar eclipse glasses will keep your eyes safe.

 “It was unfortunate to not see the full solar eclipse, I hope we can see it next time. Also, my aunt said it is pretty sad that she didn’t have glasses to see the eclipse happening. My brother also said, it was disappointing that he did nothing about the solar eclipse,” Phillip Lei (8) said.

Overall, the solar eclipse was pretty interesting to see except the part that it could harm your eyes if no protection was used.
