A Total Eclipse

Day turns to night and the crickets come out as the moon crosses paths with the sun.

A total solar eclipse happens about every 18 months but most are not easily reachable. A view-able total eclipse happens about once every 50 years. On Monday August the 21 the moon completely blocked out the sun causing a total solar eclipse that turned night into day at DeSmet Jesuit High school. This event caused classes to be delayed so that students could see the rare sight of the sun being blocked out.
