Everybody ready for the eclipse? :)

I don't have any special glasses so I'm going old-school: I made a pinhole projector. Easy as pie: take two pieces of paper or cardboard (preferably heavy card stock or white cardboard, though regular paper and brown cardboard will do), and take a pin and make a hole in one piece. During the eclipse stand with your back to the sun, put one paper on the ground or a flat surface (shade it), hold up the pinhole paper and the sun's rays will stream through the hole and you'll see the eclipse. :)

There are slightly fancier projectors (using tin foil and another uses an empty cereal box). You can google 'pinhole projectors' and there are plenty of how-to videos to watch. :)

Hopefully it won't be cloudy tomorrow!
