Minnesota view of the Annular Eclipse

 - by KitchenPantryScientist

Our family trekked to the school parking lot to watch the Annular Eclipse last night.  The kids ran and played, checking in every few minutes to peer through their solar viewers as the sun went from full circle to crescent-shaped.  It was a blast!

Here’s what we saw in our shoebox viewers before the sun disappeared behind the trees.

Some teenagers showed up at the parking lot with a telescope and projected the sun on a piece of cardboard.  It was really cool, and the image was big enough that you could see a sunspot!

Hold on to your shoe box viewers! On June 5th, Venus will pass between Earth and the sun.  I’ll find out more about it and let you know how to watch it!
