Makerspace 125 in Greenbelt, Maryland has been hosting a series of workshops on how to build a viewer for the upcoming solar eclipse (which will take place on August 21, 2017) since it’s totally foolhardy to directly look at a solar eclipse with your own eyes. I took a few photos of one of the workshops on July 22 while I got my own viewer for that fateful day.

This is the equipment used to make a solar eclipse viewer (which were mainly recycled cardboard mailing tubes and packages).
