For a few moments, the sky seems to fade several shades darker, and the sun disappears from view. For a few moments, a full solar eclipse will occur for hundred and millions of people across the United States. The astral display is a rare event. The next one that will happen in the United States will be in 2024. So what will UCAS do to celebrate?
For the third period instead of going to class at UCAS, students got to go out in the field in front of the library at UVU and watch the eclipse with the glasses they provided.Many of the students had a hard time choosing their favorite part of the day. Lydia Atkin a sophomore during lunch stated, “My favorite part was that it was a big school activity we all took a break and got to watch it.” Courtney Harada, a sophomore attending UCAS as of this year, said that “just watching it,” was her favorite part of all the activities.
