image, of the eclipsed sun on the paper
inside the box.

1. Cut one end of the tube and secure the foil
with a pinhole to it with tape.

Safety First

Never look at the sun directly without
protective eye gear.

Keep your back toward the sun while using
the projector.

Do not look at the sun through the pinhole.

viewing window.


When you’re ready to view the eclipse,
angle the end with the foil towards the sun

other end.

Enjoy the eclipse on August 21st!
