At the F.M. Kirby Children’s Center of the Madison Area YMCA, students and Camp Wantago campers had the opportunity to witness the rare and exciting phenomenon of the solar eclipse. The Center live-streamed the eclipse in the gymnasium and projected it on a movie screen so that everyone could safely watch. The children were in awe of this scientific wonder!
