The evening of our son's construction machine birthday party (come back tomorrow for all the details) there was a solar eclipse.
People. A SOLAR eclipse.
Oops, sorry for yelling, but it was darn cool.
So what did we do? We just had our party outside anyway, but since this was a 3 year old's party everyone was gone by 6pm, that's how we roll.
Anyway, with all of our elementary school knowledge and way too many Ivy League degrees (I kid you not, between four of us, I think we had six. Or more if you count Stanford) we made a pinhole camera.
We took a box lid from one of the birthday presents (thanks Jess!) we poked a hole with the tip of a ballpoint pen, then held it away from the opposite side of the box to see the solar eclipse projected onto it!
See that sliver? That's the sun!
Thanks for stopping by!
