If you don't have a pair of solar glasses- don't worry! You can still SAFELY view the eclipse using alternative, indirect methods. Meteorologist David Boyd explains the three methods and how you can make use them.
How to Make a Pinhole Projector:
- Step 1: Trace a piece of paper to fit along the bottom
- Step 2: Tape the paper inside the box and seal the top.
- Step 3: Cut rectangular holes on the left and right of the top.
- Step 4: Cut a piece of aluminum foil to cover the left hole. Tape in place.
- Step 5: Poke a pinhole in the center of the foil.
- Step 6: With the sun behind you, look into the right hole.
- Watch a projection of the eclipsed sun on the paper inside the box.
Happy eclipse viewing!
