Junction Hill Observes Solar Eclipse

On Monday August 21st, Junction Hill was excited to observe the Solar Eclipse! Students were able to receive a pair of NASA approved glasses and witness history in the making. All grade levels observed this stellar phenomenon. 

3rd grade student Jackson Hufstedler noted how the orange ring went across the moon from right to left. He said "I wish we could have an eclipse every day. Next time we have one, I will be driving!"

8th grader Lathen Coursey enjoyed the new experience. Especially the part about getting to go out of the classroom during the day. He said, "I hope next time it gets darker so we can see the stars during the day". 

The boys are referring to our area's next Solar eclipse. Mark your calendars for April 8, 2024!
