S actually missed out because she's at a Tim Hawkins* show with friends, but we took the other four kids (and I gave my sister and nieces some viewers so they could check out the eclipse on their own), and went to a nearby park with a good view of the sun in that part of the sky.
C was extremely skeptical of my hack viewers, but I assured him that I'd researched and everything. By the time we started checking out the sun through the viewers, even he became a believer. He was shocked and amazed!
So anyway, here are a handful of highly-amateur photos that I captured of the eclipse. Enjoy!
|We experimented with different kinds of "holes" besides the ones in our cardstock and our pinhole camera. Even the OK sign by hand worked pretty well.|
|And H's watchband.|
|Here's when the moon is exactly centered in front of the sun, looking through the pinhole in a piece of cardstock.|
|Here is the fully eclipsed sun as seen through the pinhole camera.|
* I'm including this bonus Tim Hawkins video, because it's one of my favorites of his...
