Eclipse

We watched the eclipse on August 21, 2017 from southern California. Eclipse glasses were a total bust for my daughter. We were on the path of partial eclipse, not total eclipse, so there was never a time it got dark. The eclipse glasses let my daughter look at the sun but it just looked like a circle to her, she couldn’t see the crescent shape. The pinhole camera we made was also a bust for the same reason. However the pinhole¬†projector¬†worked (phew, glad for 2 strikes not 3). We got a clear crescent image projected on white card on the ground about the size of a quarter, which my daughter could see by getting down close to it. The other good thing was the dappled shadows from the trees were all in crescent shapes a few inches across and those were fun to spot.
