Solar eclipse, Jackson County, 1986

Posted on August 21, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

Breathitt County high school students used handmade “sunscopes” to observe a partial solar eclipse on Oct. 3, 1986, at the high school in Jackson. A group of students from Margaret Gross’s and Hubert Harold’s science classes used a variety of devices to observe the phenomenon. Kentucky is in the direct path of a total solar eclipse on Monday. Lexington will reach 95 percent totality about 2:30 p.m. Photo by Jim Wakeham | Staff
