Solar eclipse felt, if not seen
Solar eclipse felt, if not seen

The forecast warned of cloudy skies in Monterey, but Santa Catalina teachers turned their eyes skyward anyway in hopes of catching a glimpse of the great solar eclipse of 2017.

Alas, the phenomenon was obscured by gray, but a slight darkening of the sky and a drop in temperature gave indications that Monterey's 71 percent piece of the sun-moon pie did in fact occur.

Live streams of the eclipse in totality helped ease the pain.
