On Friday 20th March 2015, a total solar eclipse occurred across the far Northern regions of Europe and the Artic. The longest duration of totality for this eclipse was 2 minutes and 46 seconds as viewed off the coast of the Faroe Islands. This will mark the last total solar eclipse in Europe for over a decade. The next not being until August 12, 2026.

In Cranbrook we celebrated the event with an early breakfast. We wore our solar eclipse glasses to view the eclipse safely. It was a bit cloudy and we didn’t get to see much of the eclipse. However we still had fun counting down, learning about how the moon covers the sun and having breakfast in school with our teachers and friends.
