Looking up …

Students, teachers and parents at Parkview Elementary School enjoyed the great American eclipse of 2017 on Aug. 21, as did millions of others across the nation. Even though the path of totality missed Rangely by a couple hundred miles to the north, Rangely got to experience 90 percent of the sun being covered by the moon on Monday. Most of the Parkview family enjoyed looking at the eclipsed sun through special eclipse glasses. Many pointed out the crescent-shaped shadows created by filtered sunshine through trees and other structures on the playground. Others were awed by live streaming internet coverage of the total solar eclipse projected on the cafeteria wall. Matt Scoggins Photo
