Patrons build a safe eclipse viewer using a cereal box and foil. This is an indirect way of viewing the sun using a projection casted by the viewer.
|Hints for uses in your library||Cloudy day at the library? Test this viewer indoors with a lamp! You can even cut out an eclipse shape on an index card and place it over the lamp to view with the viewer you made.|
