Mountain View Christian School capture eclipse

2024 Solar Eclipse

Students in Miss Jantz sixth grade class at Mountain View Christian School used a paper cup with a pinhole in the bottom, tilted onto a flat surface, to safely capture this image of today’s solar eclipse.

While the disk of the moon, passing between the sun and the Earth, completely occluded the sun in the nation’s midsection, giving viewers there a total solar eclipse, people in Idaho saw a less spectacular partial solar eclipse because Idaho lies to the west of this eclipse’s path of totality.

Still, it was exciting to see and the students, and Miss Jantz, too! were grateful for the opportunity!
