What did you think of the eclipse?

Monday dawned bright and sunny, but that didn’t last long, as at nearly 1:30 p.m., the moon was positioned to block the sun for a couple of minutes.

Metro Schools were closed, but many businesses took time out to let their employees view the once-in a lifetime event.

Ezell-Harding Christian School, in Antioch, took advantage and hosted an Eclipse viewing part for parents and family of students. Probably about 1,000 attended.

Be sure to check out these two great photos by AntiochTenn.com contributor Michelle Willard.
