On Monday, August 21, Walsh Jesuit students and faculty headed outdoors at approximately 2:15 p.m. to watch the long-awaited solar eclipse. According to an article from NASA, “A total solar eclipse through the United States has not happened since February 26, 1979.” Of the event, Mr. Vaughn, a math teacher, said, “I was expecting it to be darker outside and the totality to be better.”

Students utilized different methods of viewing the August 21st solar eclipse which is hazardous to view without such aids.

The unique experience was exciting and left viewers looking forward to the next event which, according to a recent CNN article, will occur on April 8, 2024. Senior Sydney Dawson believes that at that time “Ohio will have a lot more visitors for the event since it is in the path of the [total] eclipse. Now I just need to make sure I don’t lose my little eclipse glasses before then!”
