Woodward Experiences Total Eclipse of the Sun

On Monday, August 21, Earth experienced a total solar eclipse, and Woodward Academy was located just outside of the path of totality -- that narrow band stretching across the United States where the sun would be completely eclipsed by the moon for a two-minute period during the afternoon. While Woodward didn't experience the totality, the eclipse was still significant, casting strange shadows and darkness while also lowering the temperature by at least five degrees.

All schools took part in the viewing opportunity from about 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. (wearing their protective glasses, of course). Take a look through some of the best photos and videos from Woodward's eclipse watch!
