The great American solar eclipse has come and gone. It was a rare astronomical event and one that I shared with my daughters. With solar eclipse glasses protecting their young eyes, this was their first solar eclipse experience captured in this audio diary.
“Norah, what do you see?”
“It looks like a moon.”
“Whoa!” Shrieked her sister, Sienna, “It’s a moon! It’s the moon!”
I had to explain it’s the moon passing in front of the sun. Also, reminding the girls to keep the solar eclipse glasses covering their eyes.
