Epic Eclipse!


Did you get to see the solar eclipse on 20 March? Well, gang - the pupils at Stubbings School in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, made the most of this special event! To safely watch the eclipse, the boys and girls made pinhole projectors by piercing a tiny hole in a piece of paper. They then held the paper up, so that the sun shone through the hole and onto another piece of paper.

       "We felt determined to see the eclipse fully, and it was so tempting to turn around! Once it began, the temperature became very cold as if there was ice hanging on our shoulders. When we held our pinhole projectors in front of the eclipse, the sun reflected. It was awesome!" Ruby, 7, and Amber, 7, told NG KiDS.


If you saw the eclipse, too, then leave a comment below and let us know about your own experience! Where and how did you watch it? What did you think...?
