Horizon students watched solar eclipse

The Horizon Science Academy Dayton High School students enjoyed partial solar eclipse on Monday, Aug. 21, 2017. In the 7th period, students were provided with safe solar eclipse glasses to look at the partial eclipse took place from 1:02 pm to 3:51 pm. The parents of our students also enjoyed the partial solar eclipse. The maximum solar eclipse was observed at 2:28 at 90 percent.

A rare total eclipse of the sun was visible across swaths of the continental U.S. for the first time since 1979. And also it was the first total eclipse visible only in the USA since the country’s founding in 1776. The Moon covered a large portion of the Sun, so this was a spectacular sight. The next U.S. total solar eclipse will occur on April 8, 2024. Dayton will be one of the cities that will observe totality.
