Make a last-minute Pinhole Projector to View the Solar Eclipse

General, In the News & Around the Web

Tomorrow is the solar eclipse … which you already know unless you’ve been living under a rock or completely offline and away from any kind of media.

If you were smart, or siply better organized and prepared than I am, then you ordered the correct type of “eclipse glasses” weeks ago so you would be able to view the eclipse in all its glory. Otherwise you’ve realized that you cannot find these glasses anywhere (they’re sold out) … or you may have waited until the glasses were out of stock and then gotten onto the back order list which ensured that your (already paid for) glasses won’t arrive until after the eclipse. Which means you may not have a way to see the eclipse.

Instead of trying to wing it or miss this once-in-a-lifetime event, NASA has very graciously provided a how-to video with step-by-step instructions on making a pinhole projector using items you would find in your home.

Good luck and enjoy!
