In Houston we’re not even getting to 70% coverage of the sun, but we will make do with what we have. This morning I made two viewers which are not beautiful, but are functional. I wanted to use longer boxes to get as large a projection as possible so I retrieved two 12-pack boxes from the recycling bin. The nature of the boxes meant that a lot of patching was necessary to block all the extraneous light. Flopsy and I tried them out and they work just fine. Here the eclipse begins at 11:46, peaks at 1:16, and ends at 2:45. I’ll post again afterwards.
