Botelle Kids to View Near-Total Eclipse

In case you didn’t know, there will be a solar eclipse on Monday, April 8. Connecticut will experience a 92 percent reduction in daylight around 3:20 p.m. at the peak of the eclipse, when the moon blocks the sun.

Botelle students will have the opportunity to observe the eclipse. Looking directly at the eclipse can harm the eye, however, so Botelle has ordered special glasses for students and staff. The glasses filter out 99.9999 percent of visible sunlight and 100 percent harmful UV light from the sun. Parents who do not wish their children to observe the eclipse should let the school know .
