Our new town experienced 95% totality in today’s solar eclipse. We moseyed down to the park to watch it with the rest of town. Sadly, all the commemorative t-shirts were sold out long before we got there. They had planned a light show (the park’s fountain dances and lights up – they do a show each night), but it didn’t really get dark enough. Even when 95% of the sun is covered up, it’s still pretty bright.

My favorite thing is how all the leaves act as pinhole viewers. Hi, little sun slivers!

Here is the colander making lots of eclipse images.

Our solar glasses came from the local Astronomy Club. That’s our Pringles can viewer to the right.

When we got back, the leaves were still making eclipse images on the kitchen floor.

    Thanks for sharing. It was a really cool how you showed all the cool ways to view the eclipse.

    We also messed around with two index cards – the easiest kind of pinhole viewer to make (the colander thing is the easiest viewer of all time).
