Guys: Just a heads up a Total Solar Eclipse is coming 8/21/17. Here is a link
Last time one was viewed by the whole US was when some of ours cars had not been made. Dan
I'll add an extra dark lens to my welding helmet and try to get pics
Hillsboro, MO will have over 2 1/2 minutes of totality!
I'll just punch a small hole in a piece of paper & shine it on another piece of paper.
Tim, that actually works pretty well! St. Louis had a partial eclipse about 20 years ago and I used that method.
Get a fairly large cardboard box, one your head can fit into and still have lots of space above it. Make a head hole, now on the panel behind your head hole, near the "top" cut out a small square and glue some thick aluminum foil over the hole. Put a pinhole in the middle of the foil. On the other end of the box, glue on a white piece of paper. You now have a personal observatory, and can watch the eclipes on that piece of paper, safely.
