Eclipse 2017

One of my colleagues made a great pinhole viewer from a long and narrow Amazon box. Here's an image of today's eclipse:

My cereal-box viewer worked too. The image was brighter, but much smaller.

I dug through my Mom's slides last night, and found these ones from our eclipse expedition to the total eclipse in Virginia Beach in 1970. We made some really big pinhole viewers for the trip:
