Total solar eclipse comes to Anderson


The total solar eclipse was on April 8. There were alot of places where one could have watched the eclipse in Anderson. A lot of people were scared of the eclipse because conspiracy theorists on the internet were predicting anything from the end of the world to Jesus coming back. 

The best places in Anderson to watch the eclipse were at Mounds State Park or Edgewood. People could also watch them at any parks or even outside in backyards and parking lots. People needed solar eclipse glasses to view the eclipse. If a person didn’t have the glasses on and they looked right at the sun they could have hurt their eyes.

Freshman Joseph Elam got his own solar eclipse glasses. 

”You can get the solar eclipse glasses at gas stations, grocery stores, maybe some places where you go to watch them,” Elam said. The eclipse glasses normally are like $3 or $4. The eclipse glasses are not really that much.”

I watched the eclipse with my friend and her mom in her backyard. The eclipse was really fun. I got to take some pictures of the eclipse. Elam also watched the eclipse with family. 

”I watched the eclipse with my parents and my siblings in my yard and I got the glasses at the gas station. I was also able to get some pictures of the eclipse.”
