Students at Epiphany Cathedral Catholic School enjoy the Aug. 21 Solar Eclipse in Venice. At 2:50 p.m. the sun was covered about 80% causing the students to ooh and aah.

While the Great American Solar Eclipse never reach totality with the Diocese of Venice, students at Catholic Schools still ventured out and did science experiments to learn about this once in a lifetime event.

The blockage of the sun was between 82 and 77 percent and peaked at the end of the school day, but that was enough to evoke oohs and aahs from the young scientists.

Some schools were even asked to do experiments as part of nationwide initiative of NASA and others were interviewed by local media.
