We began by watching a live edition of BBC stargazing which was presented by Proff Brian Cox. After this, we assembled on the playground to experience the solar eclipse. Miss Gabidon had made a pin-hole projector which was 2.5 metres long. This allowed us to see an image which was 2.5 cm in diameter. As the light began to diminish, the air temperature began to drop and the wind speed reduced slightly. A total eclipse of the sun won’t take place until 2090!
