Viewing the Great Eclipse without Glasses

22 Août, 2017, 08:51 | Author: Marc Bacque
  • NASA has explained how in a few simple steps you can create a viewer capable of protecting you eyes from the potentially damaging exposure of the eclipse

A reflection of the eclipse will pay out on the paper inside the box. In this case, that's the sun as it eclipses. To make it, you cut the pizza box in half, put a one-inch round hole in the top piece, and tape a piece of foil over the hole. If there's even a tiny bit of sun exposed, the light could damage your eyes. Your other sheet, right in the middle, just take a pen, or whatever you may have, to make a really small hole, kind of about that size right there. In town one man used a cracker with holes.

A meteorologist from CBS station in North Carolina offers simple directions on making an eclipse viewer with an empty box of Cheerios, Corn Flakes, or anything else you have handy. Others projected the image onto the side of the ferry.

Viewing the solar eclipse should be done through "eclipse glasses" that meet the ISO 12312-2 global safety standard.

- Get your white piece of paper, place the cereal box on top of it and trace the bottom.

Remember, it's not safe to look directly at an eclipse without specialized glasses.

The sunlight is then supposed to go through the hole and be projected onto the piece of paper on the bottom of the cereal box. That means you can't look directly at the eclipse with this thingy - you're creating a pinhole projector that reflects the sun onto a screen.

Retinal damage to eyes may occur while attempting to stare at the sun. Never look directly at the sun without proper protection - using ISO 12312-2 lenses. Tape a piece of foil over the hole and then use a pin or a paper clip to poke a small hole in the center of the foil. Only the northeast corner of Georgia will experience this; the rest of the state will see a partial eclipse.
