Viewing the solar eclipse could be spectacular, but it could also be very dangerous if eye protection or eclipse-viewing devices are not used.
Of course viewers can run out to the store and buy special solar eclipse sunglasses, but why do that when a pinhole viewer can be made with items lying around the house. Materials needed to build a cereal box pinhole viewer include:
A cereal box
Piece of aluminum foil
White cardboard or heavy paper to fit in the bottom of the cereal box
CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Unfortunately, Northeast Ohio is not along the path of totality for the Aug. 21 event, but the area still should see an exciting partial eclipse lasting at most 2 minutes and 40 seconds.
