How to Make a Pinhole Camera to Safely View the Eclipse

Solar eclipse 2017: Make your own solar eclipse viewer

Then use the pin to make a hole in the foil and then stick the white paper on the inside of the box directly opposite the foil.

For good measure, you can check out this video from NPR, which shows five safe ways for viewing the eclipse.

Cut a piece of white paper to fit the bottom of a long box - a cereal box is ideal.

These allow you to actually look at the sun as it slowly disappears behind the moon.

"This is a safe way to view an eclipse", NASA says.

The total solar eclipse is the first over any part of the U.S. since 1979 - and the first over the entire continent since 1918 - but it will be travelling so fast you couldn't even chase it in a supersonic jet.

Lastly, tape the piece of paper to the interior of the other side of the box.

Alabama coach Nick Saban
Saban asked, before again touting the Weather Channel as the place to go for all solar eclipse appreciation. CDT in Tuscaloosa. "I mean, the success that we have has really contributed to by a lot of people".

Take your pinhole projector outside and face away from the sun so that its light shines into the pinhole.

Cut off either end of the box top, but leave the middle of the box top in place.

But if you want to actually get outside and experience the eclipse then there are a few low-priced DIY ways to do it before it's all done. Then, clip out the traced rectangle from the paper and put it in the bottom of the opened box.

You can then look through the viewing hole as the sun's image is eclipsed by the moon.

Retinal damage to eyes may occur while attempting to stare at the sun.

Next, cut a small hole in the center of the pizza box's top, tape a square piece of foil over it, and poke a tiny hole in the foil.

But some part of the sun's core will be visible during the event, meaning eye protection is a necessity to avoid possible damage of the cornea of your eyes. Do NOT let anyone look through the binoculars at the sun.
