The 2017 Solar Eclipse: How To Make Sure You Get To See It. It's going to be one awesome event! The world around you will be pitch black for a couple of minutes, in the middle of the day! Prepare for an eerie - almost mystical - experience. If you're traveling to see the Great American Eclipse, you have to read this blog post first. It has all the details you need.
Much of the Western United States is going to be able to see an annular eclipse on the evening of May 20, 2012 from about 6 to 7 p.m. Observing the eclipse is fun and easy with a pinhole viewer that you can build at home.
Make your own pinhole camera to safely view a solar eclipse in action! (NEVER look directly at the sun without proper solar filters!) Plus get ideas for turning these stellar events into an art project you can keep long after the eclipse is over.
