Williamsburg Health and Rehab residents and staff and even a dog, enjoyed some quality time under the sun…and the moon on Monday as they witnessed the solar eclipse. The event, which has been coined “The Great American Eclipse,” has been the talk of the country with it being 99 years since the last time a total solar eclipse crossed over the entire continental United States.

For those unfamiliar with the occurrence, a total solar eclipse is when the moon passes between the sun and Earth and blocks the view of the sun for up to about three hours from a given location.

Although the clouds hindered the view a tad, it didn’t hinder Williamsburg HRC’s enthusiasm or celebration as they continued to marvel at the eclipse for minutes, pointing out the greatness of it to each other. all while snacking on moon pies and Sunkist. The next chance to witness a total solar eclipse will be on April 8, 2024.
