Beginning, middle and end of the annual solar eclipse, with the ring of fire.

It was a chilly morning with scattered clouds on Saturday, Oct. 14, in the VMHS student parking lot. The science department hosted a solar eclipse viewing party. They were even selling solar eclipse glasses.

The Patriot fans came and viewed the solar eclipse when the science department hosted a solar eclipse watch party from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the student parking lot Oct 14 (Janah Green)

“I was excited to view the eclipse, an Annular Solar eclipse. This was my first time observing such an eclipse.  I was very impressed with how it turned out,” Sarah Waters, science teacher and department chair, said. ”The Science Department hosted a viewing party Saturday in the student parking lot, and we had a great turnout! We also sold nachos; the student council sold themed snacks and drinks. I was very pleased with the outcome of the viewing party and happy with the money we raised to help the Science department purchase lab supplies and equipment. I am excited about the Total Solar Eclipse I can view on April 8, 2024.”

The eclipse was such a cool experience to watch; I had never seen something like that before. It was a really beautiful thing to watch. I didn’t know that when an eclipse happens, it can make little shadows in the trees that have little eclipse showing in them.
