How can I see the eclipse if I don't have eclipse glasses?
Since it's not safe to look at the eclipse without protecting your eyes, the AAS has also provided alternative ways to view the eclipse.
Fienberg notes that finding a tree with sunlight shining through the leaves will project an image of the sun, and the eclipse, on the ground. Looking at the ground while holding up a colander can have the same effect.
Another option is to catch one of the many live streams of the eclipse. This can be particularly useful for anyone who isn't in the path of totality.
Stay safe and enjoy this special event.
