What a fun and momentous occasion the solar eclipse was yesterday! The Bethel PTL generously purchased solar glasses for all of the students and staff. In a school assembly yesterday morning, Mrs. Bartholemew, with the help of some students and Mr. Jacob, demonstrated what the students were about to view by showing us how the earth (aka Mr Jacob), moon and sun revolve and rotate around one another. The students were also given safety warnings and told how to properly view the eclipse with their glasses. At 1:15 pm we were able to see approximately 93% totality of the moon eclipsing the sun! What an amazing site it was! We were awed at how our God shows his amazing order and work in all he has created!
"Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord from the heavens; praise him in the heights! Praise him, all his angels; praise him, all his hosts! Praise him sun and moon, praise him, all you shining stars!" Psalms 148:1-3
