Students experience rare solar eclipse

Students at Ponca City Public Schools were able to experience Monday’s rare solar eclipse.

Safe solar eclipse glasses were provided so children, as well as staff, could watch as the moon passed between the earth and sun, blocking about 91 percent of the sun in Ponca City. Not only could they watch as the moon passed between the two other bodies, but they could see the effect of  the eclipse in shadows on the ground. What normally would have been the outline of leaves under trees or circles through pinholes instead showed the crescent pattern formed by the moon.
