Now that it’s over, how do you feel about Monday’s big eclipse — or lack thereof?
Asked at Sunflower Elementary School, 2521 Inverness Drive on August 21, 2017
“Really sad and mad at the same time… We wanted to see this, and we just didn’t.”
“I’m kind of sad because I’ve never seen one before and I thought I’d never get to see one until I’m older. ”
“I think it was kind of lame that the eclipse did not show up for us. I think Mother Nature didn’t want us to see it, but it’s nice that people saw it outside of Lawrence. ”
“Sad… (Reports) said we were gonna get 97 percent — like almost a total eclipse — and nothing happened. ”
“I kind of wish we would’ve seen it, but in our class we streamed it live, so we got to see that, at least.”
“Sad, because we didn’t get to see it at all. ”
