How to Use the Solar Eclipse Glass?

Here are the steps that you need to follow to watch the Solar Eclipse using the hoe made glasses that you just created.

  • Stand in a direction,  so the sun is behind you & you can see the shadow you are casting.
  • Hold the box up, like a flute, so that the eclipse can reflect onto the tin foil.
  • When you look into the other opening on the box, the sun should incrementally disappear on the white paper.
  • If you don’t have a box lying around, you can just use a piece of white card stock and some aluminum foil to project the eclipse onto another surface without having to look directly at the eclipse altogether.

Once you have your pinhole projector made, you can stand with your back to the sun and orient your projector so you see the sun’s reflection on the white paper. And now enjoy the beauty sun and its performance
