Totally Awesome Eclipse Observed


Quite some time ago (many years) Leonard Holden donated his beloved telescope to highland high school. This very heretics gift has been part of science classes for over 20 years. Lately it has not been used though.

But that all ended today. For the past week Leonard, Nannette Daugherty and I have been warming up the telescope to be functional for today’s solar eclipse.

Near 200 students and administrators came up to the sweltering observatory to witness a celestial miracle. A total eclipse of the sun

Thanks Leonard for making this day possible.” It was my pleasure to share this experience with you and with all the students who were present.” Said Marc Herring
