How to Watch Solar Eclipse Without Special Glasses

Here's what you'll need to watch the Solar Eclipse on Monday if you don't have any special glasses:

Cereal box

Nail

Sheet of white paper

Aluminum foil

Scissors

Tape

Pencil


Instructions:

1.    Place a piece of plain white paper under the bottom of your cereal box, trace the shape and cut it out.   

2.    Tape the piece of paper inside the bottom of the box.   

3.    Cut two rectangles at each corner of the top of the box.   

4.    Cover the left corner with a piece of aluminum and tape to secure.    

5.    Poke a hole in the center of the foil with a nail.


When it’s time to view the eclipse, stand with your back to the sun and look into the right hole. The light will pass through the nail hole on the left and create a projection on the white paper in the bottom of the box. As the moon passes in front of the sun, watch the spot of light become a crescent and, during a total solar eclipse like the one passing over the U.S., disappear completely before emerging on the other side.
