Knight Life, Vol. 6: Photos from the Eclipse

On Monday, April 8, 2024, the sun over Altamont looked more like the moon. Photo by Lucine Carsen.

Welcome to the sixth installment of Knight Life, a series of photographs that capture moments of life at Altamont. In this installment, a special day: staff handed out eclipse-viewing glasses so students and staff could safely view the moon passing in front of the sun. More photos are below.
