Did you know that St. Maarten will experience a partial solar eclipse next Monday? That means the sun will be blocked by the moon! Part of the sun will be covered up by the moon for about two and a half hours on Monday afternoon! Starting at about 2:20pm and peaking at maximum coverage at 3:18pm. It will end at 4:40pm.

Be careful! Don’t look at the solar eclipse! It can hurt your eyes, even with sunglasses! You have to have proper solar eclipse glasses which are available at Blue Point. Ask your science teacher if you can get some to share during Monday’s eclipse!
