You don’t necessarily need fancy equipment to watch one of the sky’s
most awesome shows: a solar eclipse. With just a few simple supplies,
you can make a pinhole camera that allows you to view the event safely
and easily.

Before you get started, remember: You should never look at the Sun
directly without equipment that’s specifically designed for solar
viewing. Do not use standard binoculars or telescopes to watch the
eclipse, as the light could severely damage your eyes. Sunglasses also
do NOT count as protection when attempting to look directly at the Sun.

Stay safe and still enjoy the Sun’s stellar show by creating your very
own pinhole camera. It’s easy!
