The Solar Eclipse As Seen in Ohio

I can’t believe I didn’t post this sooner!  Anyway, though we didn’t see a full eclipse, we were able to see a partial solar eclipse.  However, we couldn’t seem to get a hold of any glasses, and we also couldn’t locate a welding helmet in time.  So, we decided to go old school.  :p

We put boxes on our heads.

Did it look ridiculous?  Yes.  Did it work?  Yep!  Basically, my boyfriend made pinhole projectors from boxes, we went outside, put the sun at our backs, put the boxes on our heads, and watched the show!  I even let the mailman try it out.  LOL!  What did the view look like?  Well…

We also experimented with my telescope and a pair of binoculars.

We may have looked ridiculous, but it was fun and did the job!  Just remember:  when you don’t have what you need, use some ingenuity. 😉
