This is actually my third time seeing a solar eclipse, but this one was a partial, and not a full eclipse. Guam has been very fortunate the passed several years to be able to view any type of Solar Eclipse. I actually viewed one with my students back in the late 1990s. We did the whole making a pinhole in a box, and reflected it upon a white board or paper. It was awesome!
But a few years later, I was at home with my in-laws and when another solar eclipse was happening, we went out to the carport at the time, and my mother in-law's car had shadows of the eclipse reflected off her white car from a tree nearby! I was oh cool, a tree could be a filter?!
So, this time around, I just took a piece of white paper and went outside with my phone, and found a tree directly under the sun! Sure enough, it filtered the action before my eyes! Here are some shots of the whole event!
In order to make this work, you need to be in an area that is not too breezy, direct sun light is showing through the tree branches, and leaves. Never look directly at the sun. It can be very harmful to your eyes.
Below: about 11am position.
Give it a try the next time there is a solar eclipse in your area!
My husband's shot here!
