Solar Eclipse

Those of you looking for the solar eclipse tonight, avoid coastal areas for viewing incase evening cloud cover moves in. Look to the west starting at 5:20 p.m. The full eclipse will run for a little over two hours peaking at just after 6:30 p.m. with the moon fully blocking out the sun. For viewing. Get two pieces of cardboard--one piece colored white to project onto. Cut a square in one cardboard, then tape a piece of foil over the square. Now make a pinhole in the middle of the foil. With the sun behind you, hold the pinhole cardboard as far from the white cardboard as you can. Remember, the farther you are from the screen, the bigger your image. Do not look directly into the sun or use binoculars or a telescope.
