    No eclipse glass

    Here you go

    People have also been posting that without the correct filter it will ruin your camera.
    Seems a lots of disagreement on this one. Except you wont get a very good image with a cell phone anyway. So I will pass, we will just watch it on the news.

    or hold a colander over your shoulder, focus on the sidewalk and watch dozens of images.

    I made a eclipse viewer out of a cardboard box , family sized Cheeze-It, Minion variety, low tech is my way! The colander is another cool way to view it .

    You can also see the eclipse by looking at some shiny broadleaf bushes.. there will be an image on almost every leaf.

    Welding glasses, window tint folded over a few times. Heck, even look at a reflected image on something. Plenty of options. Are you telling me no one has ever looked into the sun up to this point? I mean dang. There are plenty of pictures of the sun on my camera in the background. I can't see it hurting thenequipment. Maybe a bad photo. Bunch of nancys running around.

    I did go and get my auto darkening welding hood, I can set it to any shade up to 13 I think, should be good to go, ought to put my phone in there and record through the hood. We are supposed to get 93% here, but you know the internets will be FLOODED with vids and pics for years to come over this one.
    Got a .22 .32 .357 .38 .40 .41 .44 .45 .480 or .500 S&W cylinder that needs throat reaming? 9mm, 10mm/40S&W, 45 ACP pistol barrel that won't "plunk" your handloads? Shoot me a PM! Also on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Cylinderhone-756429174391912/

    You know, while that sounds funny, odd things can happen when odd atmospheric stuff does. I'm gonna stick close to home base. Never know...

    BAD ADVICE do not do this. With the main part of the sun darkened your eyes will open wide, the corona brightness is high enough to sear your retinas. Use proper equipment, use the pinhole trick etc!

    Is there a driver that hasn't had to drive looking directly into the full sun? Tinted windshields help, but aren't always enough. It is very uncomfortable but we've all done it.
    In this instance, we have a choice and time to prepare. Don't be foolish and do perminate damage to the only eyes you'll ever have.
    After all, it's only the dark side of the moon, in front of the sun, we're seeing with such interest. We see part of it every time we see the moon unless it's full. The darkness is only a shadow and I stand on mine all the time.

    My son and I have a bet on how many thousands will go blind by using faulty methods or fake "eclipse" glasses. Yes, we are a cynical bunch.

    No eclipse glass

    Looks pretty much the same here. Totality, which is 72% coverage isn't for another twelve minutes.

    Haven't dealt with any more crazies than usual so far. Peeked at the sun to see the 97% eclipse. Still able to see. Did look through some glasses and was cool to see
