You Can Use A Cereal Box To Watch The Eclipse

We've been hearing about the upcoming solar eclipse pretty much every day for the past month, everything from the logistics of when it's happening (that would be August 21st) to the best way to see it & the glasses that you can buy to safely view it because it is not safe for your eyes to look at it with the naked eye because it can damage your vision.

So what do you do if you want to view it, but you don't want to buy the special eclipse glasses? Well, NASA has a suggestion for you--a video tutorial that shows you how to make a pinhole camera using a cardboard cereal box to view the eclipse. It's cheap & easy, using only the box, a piece of plain paper, aluminum foil, tape and scissors.
