View of a Lifetime!

November 8, 2017

Do you know the 8th grade science teacher Mr. Rodgers?  You might remember him as the teacher who is always roller skating around the campus. Well, on the first day of school this year, August 21, Mr. Rodgers was in Madras, Oregon, watching the historic solar eclipse. “It was a more than cool experience to view the total solar eclipse is Madras, Oregon, [and] not just because the temperature dropped when the sun was hidden by the moon,” Mr. Rodgers said. When Mr. Rodgers heard about the solar eclipse, he just knew that it was something he had to experience himself. “I was personally transfixed by the Sun’s corona! I can’t believe that I was looking at the corona with my own naked eyes! Normally, you can’t look at the corona with your eyes unless you have eye protection!” Mr.Rodgers exclaimed. “The moon moved just a tiny bit and the loudest eruption of joy I have ever heard!” Mr.Rodgers said. “Then the moon moved and a secondary eruption of joy emanated from the crowd as the totality ended and the second diamond ring appeared,” Mr.Rodgers said. “No sooner than the ending of totality, a slow wave of eclipsers emigrating from Madras ensued only to be trapped in automotive gridlock.”
