Photos: Tucson kids watch solar eclipse

Students at Borton Magnet Elementary School, 700 E. 22nd St., took in the partial eclipse of the sun on Monday morning, using pin-hole cameras, special glasses and solar paper. 

The partial eclipse began around 9:15 a.m. and in Tucson, the moon obstructed about 60 percent of the sun at the eclipse's height. 

Called the "Great American Eclipse," the eclipse was visible in a band that extended across the entire contiguous United States, passing from the Pacific Northwest to the Atlantic coast.
