Solar eclipse

The clouds moved on,  and this is what we see inside the box.  Not a stellar picture, but balancing the box, aiming it correctly,  and manipulating the phone to take the picture was getting hilarious.  You can see the "bite " the moon is taking, though.  It is only a partial solar eclipse, but still not seen very often.  We're glad we took the time.



Solar Eclipse- sort of

We prepared two boxes: pinhole on one side, white paper on the other inside end.  (As in the picture)  Went outside and saw the beginning of the eclipse-  lower right side of the sun with  a bite being taken.  Then the clouds rolled in. The second picture is where the sun is - behind the clouds.  At least we saw the beginning!
