The first day of school is always a big deal. Kids have to get up early after a summer of sleeping in, and teachers have to plan out the year and memorize a lot of new names. For science teachers in the Fort Worth school district, the first day of school on Monday also meant talking about a historic solar eclipse going on right outside.

On Monday, millions of people across the United States will have the opportunity to witness a total solar eclipse. It's the first of its kind in 99 years.
