Want to view the Great American Eclipse on Aug. 21 in a safe way by upcycling an old media tube and using a few other items you have in your shop?
The video above gives step-by-step instructions on how to use an empty media core, plastic end caps, a ruler, pencil, drill and 1/8-inch bit and a fine-tooth saw to create a pinhole projector for eclipse viewing.
Get started now so you’ll be ready on Monday when a total eclipse of the sun will occur and can be viewed as the path of totality cuts across the United States from Oregon to South Carolina. For the best viewing, you’ll have to be within the 60 to 70-mile wide path, pictured here.
Remember: Looking directly at the sun in any manner can cause damage to your eyes. Follow the directions in the video above carefully.
