Solar eclipse!

Wow, we had an amazing experience today. A partial eclipse of the sun. Mr potter brought a huge home made pinhole camera and Mrs Arkless had her special glasses to look through. I loved the gasps of amazement when you put the glasses on and looked up! We saw lots of crescent shapes as rays of sunlight came through trees and bushes. Mrs A's cardigan made a heap of these.
 I wonder who could find out why this was happening?
Another 13 years to wait for another one and 16 years for a total eclipse! Where will we all be and what will be doing by then I wonder!
