On Friday 20 March there was a solar eclipse. The moon covered 89% of the sun and it happened at 9:32am. We looked at it through a telescope and the picture was projected onto a piece cardboard. It kept on getting colder because as the moon covered the sun it blocked out the heat. It was amazing and we may never see anything like this again in Scalford in our lifetimes.
