‘Throwin’ shade’ eclipse style

For the first time since 1979, people witnessed a rare solar eclipse on Monday, Aug. 21. All schools in Marion County were closed, and several businesses closed, as well, which allowed many people, and their children, to enjoy viewing the eclipse together. This is the first time in 100 years that a total eclipse has crossed the span of the continent.
