On Monday North America gets to see it’s first total solar eclipse in 100 years. Even though here in Ottawa about 61% of the sun will be covered, you still can’t stare straight at it!
If you didn’t get the chance to pick up a pair of those special glasses to view the eclipse, the only other thing you can do is make something! In the video below I show you how to make something out of a cereal box using a few things you can find around the house.
The moon will start covering the sun at 1:17 p.m. Monday, with maximum coverage at 2:35, and last 2 hours and 31 minutes in total. Check out this link for more detailed information.
Again DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE ECLIPSE!!
