Most of the Northern Hempishere got to witness a solar eclipse this morning. The moon moved across the face of the sun but did not completely block the light coming from it. Instead, there was just a thick silver of brilliance left to shine around the Sun’s disc.
Mr Fitzsimons’ class joined Mr Doyle’s class at the GAA pitch just after 11am to witness this event. Some members of the P7 class brought specially approved eclipse glasses with them. These were then used by everyone to spectate.
Such a great experience!
