Can’t Find Eclipse Glasses? Make Your Own Viewer! [VIDEO]

Subscribe to WQCB Brewer Maine on

Solar eclipse glasses are like gold right now, rare and precious! So, if you couldn’t find any but want to watch the eclipse today, here’s a quick video to show you how to make your own viewer.

Did you do this project in school? I remember we did it in 1970, when there was another solar eclipse. It works pretty well! And making the viewer is super easy, using stuff you probably have around the house.

You’ll need:

  • A shoe box
  • White paper
  • Aluminum foil
  • Tape
  • A pin or needle

That’s it! Gather the supplies and construct yours along with Ranger Bob Reichman of New Jersey as he shows you how to do it.

If you want a different perspective on the eclipse, log onto NASA’s live eclipse site to watch it streamed online by high altitude weather balloons. A group of scientists from the University of Maine are helping in this project from Clemson University in South Carolina.
