There was a solar eclipse this morning, and the school gathered everyone (parents invited) to watch the eclipse on screen. T’s class sang a song before the screening, and there were some pupils who demonstrated how an eclipse happens. Alas, London wasn’t plunged into darkness at all. The cloud cover was so thick that it looked just like another ordinary wintery windy morning when the eclipse was at its height.
Ironically, the clouds started clearing soon after the eclipse and throughout the day, it remained super sunny. I picked up two pairs of special glasses near a trash bin at Regent’s Park on my weekly jog, discarded probably by disappointed eclipse watchers. The boys were very pleased to be able to see the sun directly for the first time using their special glasses after school!
