Experience Totality 8/21/17

Don't miss the experience of a lifetime! August 21, 2017 is the first total solar eclipse over the continental U.S. in 38 years!

Safe Eclipse Viewing without Eclipse Glasses

Build a Simple Pinhole Projector

If you cannot find eclipse glasses, you can still enjoy the eclipse using a simple pinhole projector. There are several ways to make one, including using a cardboard box, or just two paper plates. Poke a pinhole in one plate, and orient it so the Sun shines through the pinhole to project an image onto the second plate. See How to Make a Pinhole Projector from NASA.
