Turn around, every now and then the moon blocks the sun like on August 21, 2017. On the first Monday of the 2017/2018 school year the was a solar eclipse. This was the first solar eclipse in the continental United States in 38 years. A solar eclipse is when the Sun, the Moon, and the Earth all line up. This occurs at the “New Moon” phase in the lunar cycle causing the moon to block the sun. Everyone in the United States saw at least a partial solar eclipse. In Texas, we saw about 75% coverage for this eclipse. However, in 2024 there will be another eclipse and it is expected to be going right through Texas. Until then, there won’t be any eclipses that we will be able to see.
