Faces of Williamstown Elementary fourth graders fill with amazement as they look up to the sky to see the eclipse for the first time. Both Grant County and Williamstown school districts provided glasses to students. Photos by Bryan Marshall HEARD DURING THE ECLIPSE: • “It’s like outer space.” • “That is so creepy.” • “This is so amazing.” • “That’s an eclipse.” • “Wait, that’s all we see?” • “I see yellow.” • “I don’t get it.” • “Will we get sunburnt from this?” • “Holy cow.” • “It looks like a frown face.” (These comments by local students were overheard during the eclipse.)

Of course, those eyes were covered with NASA-approved glasses to safely view the historic event.
With Hopkinsville, Kentucky deemed the “point of greatest eclipse,” and the totality of the eclipse set for around school dismissal, many districts across the state canceled classes.
