Solar Eclipse

As you may or may not know on Wednesday the 14th of November we were lucky enough to experience a solar eclipse. A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between earth and the sun. This rarely happens. When we found out this was happening we went up to the Tawa College field where some students and teachers had set up special telescopes to look at the eclipse. We had to use telescopes and special glasses because you are unable to see the eclipse with out them, because it is so bright. When we looked at the eclipse this is what we saw -

As you can see in the picture above the black circle is the moon and the light coming out from behind is obviously the sun. We were very lucky to be able to see this solar eclipse because there might not be another one in our lifetime.
