The total eclipse occurred Monday and was an educational experience for everyone, especially students.
At schools throughout Bond County boys and girls used special glasses to watch the eclipse,
Many attached the glasses to paper plates, and fitted them to their noses, to make sure they could see through the glasses without them slipping away. That was important because damage can occur by watching the eclipse with the naked eyes.
Greenville Elementary School fifth graders Shelby Joiner and Declan Graber enjoyed the eclipse.
