Solar Eclipse Craft

What an exciting day it was in the United States today! A total solar eclipse was visible in a band of land across the entire contiguous United States from the Pacific to the Atlantic coasts.

This one has been called the "Great American Eclipse".

Thanks to NASA for the live streaming of this iconic event, I could watch it at home with my toddler. We created this craft later so my little one could also understand what was really going on and what the big deal was all about. It seems she understands now so mission accomplished.
