It was time. The day had come: the solar eclipse. We were all on the roof of the house waiting until everything went dark. It was a sunny day of course but the solar eclipse could come at any time. It wasn’t worth batting blind. The eclipse could last for maximum a day and a half. Today we were going to look at the eclipse through special cameras that allow us to look at the solar eclipse safely and not get blind. This was an expensive camera to rent for the day so hopefully it would be worth it.
