No special glasses. No pinhole camera (yes. I know you can make your own, but you aren't me, and I can't). But hang on....the radio tells me you can do something clever with a colander. That's right. Let the sun shine though a colander, and voila! An eclipse.
Don't you believe it. What you see (what I saw) when doing this is the sun's reflection of....a colander. Who would have thought it? Not really interesting, even for anyone with a thing for colanders. So...
Dear reader, I looked up. That's what I did. I know you're not supposed to, but I only did it for a nanosecond, two or three times, and I saw the eclipse. And it was quite interesting. And then I drove off to visit the horse (who hasn't been the same since I gave him some bits of chocolate brownie, and he went on a kind of sugar high for fifteen minutes), but he wasn't at all interested in the eclipse ("have I seem the what? No. I just need more of that chocolate thingy"). Neither was anyone else.
But I saw it. Did you?
