2017 Solar Eclipse

We enjoyed checking out the solar eclipse today.  



We tried several pinhole projectors.










We looked through eclipse glasses.






 We looked at the eclipse through the tree leaves on a piece of paper and on our arms and legs.


 Katy even got the eclipse on her forehead.
