What Happened to the Sun?

"What happened to the sun?"

That was the question of a 2-year old Toddler learner of Kiddie Toes Montessori School.

All the learners -- from Toddlers to 2nd Graders -- went out of their classroom last July 22, 2009 to look at the sun.

It is the longest total solar eclipse in our lifetime, and the second longest in recorded history, next only to the June 20, 1955 eclipse in Manila.

It is only partial in the Philippines with an eclipse magnitude of about 50% in Metro Manila. However, in Santiago City, Isabela, the learners were lucky enough to witness more than 50% eclipse.

So the learners and teachers went down at around 9:30am to witness this once in a lifetime event. They had welding glasses and filter strips to protect their eyes from the sun.

They were also made to draw in a paper what they observed during this phenomenon.

To view all the pictures during this event, visit the
Kiddie Toes Multiply site.
