On August 21, all of the USA could see the solar eclipse but not everyone could see the total solar eclipse. Fortunately the total solar eclipse happened near us.

I went to Columbia, Illinois to see it, and it was pretty neat.  In Columbia, the totality happened  at 1:17 p.m.  and lasted for about two minutes.

Some people didn’t go anywhere and just stayed at their house. I interviewed people to see where they went for the eclipse.

The two questions I asked were “Where did you go to watch the eclipse?” and “Is there anything else you would like to say about the eclipse?”

“I went to St. Genevieve, MO where my grandma lives. My grandma lives about one mile from where the eclipse passed through,” said Maddax Crump (7).

“I went to my back yard. It hurt my eyes and gave me a headache,” said Ayden Price (8).

“I went to Fults, Ilinois. The totality was pretty lit,” said Jacob Geisen (8).

“My dad and I sat it the Kohl’s parking lot and after we watched it we texted my mom and told her we were blind from the Sun,” said Keira Shelton (8).

“I went to my back yard. I swam in my pool. My dogs were scared,” said Kayla Morrisey (8).

“I went to Carbondale, where my grandparents live. It was really cool,” said Avery Hamilton (7).

“I went to the magic house,” said Kody Moore (7).

“I stayed at my house,” said Isaiah Slater (7).

“My family owns a farm near St. Louis and I went there. It was really pretty. I thought it looked like a cookie that someone took a bite out of it,” said Hannah Cusimano (7).

The next solar eclipse that we will experience will be in 2024. Then maybe one in 2045, 2052, 2078 and possibly a great one over Maine in 2079.

The last total solar eclipse that happened in the USA was on June 8, 1918. The eclipse went from Washington to Florida.
