Happy Eclipse Day

A group of fifth-grade students in Maywood, Illinois, view the July 20, 1963, eclipse with “sunscopes.” By piercing a three-millimeter hole in cardboard boxes to create crude pinhole cameras, the students could watch an inverted image of the eclipse cross the inside of the box without harming their eyes.

We hope you have a  safe and fun shared eclipse day today. Cheers!
