Solar Eclipse Moment

The last time we had a solar eclipse was seven years ago, but finally April 8th, 2024 the solar eclipse made it back. It was on a school day thatACE students and staff were all going to experience it together.  The solar eclipse is basically when the moon covers the sun and it goes dark for some period of time. You can only observe the sun with solar viewers to protect your eyes from directly looking at the sun. If you don’t have solar viewers you shouldn’t look at the sun directly because it can damage your retina.

Everyone was so excited to be able to see the solar eclipse again after seven years. Eric Gallegos said from ACE , “I was super excited to see the solar eclipse; this one was the last one for a long time.”  Also one of the students from ACE Andres Torres said, “I’m very excited to see the solar eclipse finally.” At dismissal time John our principal gave every single one of us glasses to wear to be able to see the solar eclipse. Everyone was talking about wanting to see the solar eclipse and this will be the last time we will get to experience the solar together.

The solar eclipse started after school around 3. Eric Gallegos and Andres Torres said they watched it after school with their siblings. This experience brought family and friends together to create beautiful moments like this. Thanks to John and DJ for the solar eclipse glasses.
