Monday, Aug. 21 the states were presented with an eclipse of the sun. Many permanent fund employees took a break from work to witness the phenomenon. In southwest Colorado we had a view of a partial eclipse. A solar eclipse is when the moon is directly between the sun and earth cast a shadow on our planet. If you’re in the dark part of that shadow you will see a total eclipse. If you’re in the light part, you’ll see a partial eclipse.
