I saw it!
I saw the solar eclipse!
While I saw walking back home from an appointment in Riverdale, I looked up and saw that most of the sun was gone! It was about a quarter of the way gone; the sun looked like a crescent.
A nice old man, who also saw the eclipse, said that another one would be coming to New York in about seven years from now. Then, I met a girl who had those special glasses that protect your eyes from the eclipse. She let me borrow them and I was able to take a good picture of the eclipse.
I was glad to see that other people were excited about the eclipse. At first, I thought that I was the only person in the neighborhood who cared. I was also worried that I wouldn’t be able to see the eclipse from New York, but I saw it and met people who were interested in it too. I already been a fan of science, from the science of space to the science of living things.
I watched the rest of the eclipse on TV. We might not has gotten a total solar eclipse here in New York, but I’m still glad that I gotten to see at least part of an eclipse. Seeing something like this makes me want to travel around the world and see other amazing things.
Well, that’s all I wanted to say. I’m still a little excited from the eclipse. I’m going to work on a few things and try to relax. I will talk to you later. Have a great rest of your day.
