On Monday, Aug. 21 Ada High students were able to view the solar eclipse together as a school. Everyone  was provided NASA-approved solar glasses. Students sat on the lawn, stood by the steps and talked with friends while they watched the eclipse.

A Solar Eclipse is when the moon, which orbits around Earth, moves between the sun and Earth. This causes the moon to cast a shadow. Certain places are affected more than others, and these places are in The Path of Totality. The Path of Totality includes the places that will be most affected. In some places, there was barely any change, but in others there was almost complete darkness. In Oklahoma, the eclipse was predicted to block out approximately 86% of the sun’s rays.
