The Solar Eclipse 

On Monday I saw a solar eclipse. It was the most awesome thing I have ever seen. We went to Oregon, where our aunt lives. Our family plus our aunt, Don, Dale, John, and Chuck went about two hours from her house to see the full eclipse.

When we got to our viewing place, we set up the chairs and two tents. Then my dad made pancakes for us to eat for breakfast. After that we tested out special eclipse glasses. Then we saw the moon cover the sun. After the sun was completely covered by the moon, we saw totality. We saw Bailey’s Beads around the sun for two minutes. It was so dark that we could see the stars. 

I would recommend seeing a solar eclipses if you ever have a chance. We had to do a lot of driving, but it was worth it.
