I got to see the solar eclipse today. First I saw it through a welding mask. I tried to take a photo of it, but it didn't turn out very well. Then my mom taught me a trick on how to safely look at a solar eclipse without looking into the sun. She said she learned this trick when she was in 4th grade. It's call "pinhole projection". Below are some photos of me demonstrating how to use a pinhole projection to view a solar eclipse.

|Here is another trick my mom showed me. I created pinholes by simply overlapping my fingers in 90 degree angles. If you look closely, you can see many solar eclipse shadows in my shadow. Photo by my mom.|

Did you see the annular solar eclipse today?
Have you seen one in the past?
If so, how did you see it?
