Colander Shadow Eclipse

Viewing the eclipse directly with your eyes will damage them.  Shade 14 lenses were needed to view the eclipse.  There were special glasses in the area which quickly sold out.  Many people viewed the eclipse with alternate viewing methods.  Using a kitchen colander was one method.  Each one of the holes acted as pinhole camera which allowed the staff to see many images of the crescent sun on the ground.
