Enjoy the eclipse tomorrow

Trees project images of the sun!

But be careful!

The maximum eclipse occurs at 2:30 p.m. in Columbus, and we will see > 85% of the Sun covered up.  Though not as spectacular as a total eclipse, it’s still quite a sight.  Check out this video of the view you’ll get.

If you don’t have proper eclipse glasses, you can still enjoy the eclipse with low-tech devices.  The easiest way is to walk under trees: the little gaps between the leaves will act as pinhole cameras and project images of the sun.  Don’t look at the Sun between the leaves – look down and you’ll see images of the thin crescent sun.

Comment below with your experiences of the eclipse!  I’d like to hear where you watched it, and how it was for you.
