Xander Muck is no stranger to the sight of an eclipse, but he’s never seen one quite like the Great American Eclipse.

The seventh grader from Memorial Elementary in Hart County said he saw a lunar eclipse in fifth grade. He said he’s also seen a blood moon, but this will be his first solar eclipse.

“It’ll probably look like night,” Muck said. “Birds and some other animals will go back to their habitats.”

Muck said his social studies teacher saw a solar eclipse. She described the experience to him, so he kind of knows what to expect when the sky goes black.

“It’ll be pretty cool,” Muck said.

But will it be as amazing as the lunar eclipse he saw in fifth grade? Muck said he’ll just have to wait and see.
