On the 20th March we are lucky enough to be witnesses to a rare event – no not Johnny winning a Challenge Haven – but the Solar Eclipse!
Many of you may remember the solar eclipse we had in 1999 and marveled at how the sun disappeared. We can do that all again this month but this one is extra special as it will be the last solar eclipse in Europe until August 12th 2026!
As exciting as it is we need to remember to be safe and protect our peepers. That’s why we’ve been busy making our solar eclipse viewer. It’s really simple to make and everything can be found around the house!
