But even if you can’t find any, you’re not out of luck.
You can make simple pinhole viewers with items you probably already have at home.
These viewers use the image of sunlight projected through a small hole to let you observe the eclipse without looking directly at the sun.
We’ve compiled directions for three ways to make them, depending on the materials you have.
- Shoebox pinhole eclipse viewer
- Cereal box pinhole eclipse viewer
- Card stock / index card pinhole eclipse viewer
Have fun making them, and remember to send us your eclipse photos on Monday. We’ll have a link to share your photos on our homepage and in our app.
