CMS students study the solar eclipse

Campbellsville Middle School students have learned all about the upcoming solar eclipse.

 

In preparation for viewing the eclipse on Monday, Aug. 21, students have been learning all about why an eclipse is happening and what people will actually see.

 

This year’s total eclipse will be the first seen in Kentucky since 1869, and all parts of the Commonwealth will see at least 90 percent of the sun obscured by the moon.

 

In their science classes, CMS students have been studying facts about eclipses, such as how the moon will cross over the sun, and the proper terms for describing what happens during an eclipse.

 

Students simulated what they will see on Monday by covering a drawing of a moon with their hands and closing one eye.
