Remember, never look at the sun without protection. Not even for a moment. :) Use approved glasses (not sunglasses) or even better, use one of the techniques below so you don't have to look directly at the sun at all. There will be plenty of professionals taking pictures and videos, so why not just enjoy it using tools you make yourself!
Make a pinhole box or pinhole projector to view the eclipse and amaze your friends! Or you can even stand under a tree! The sunlight shining through leaves behaves like a pinhole projector and you'll see the eclipse projected on the ground (see a picture of the effect at this link about halfway down the page).
Post pictures of your eclipse related activities here, including your pinhole box or projector and the images of the eclipse you captured with it. Or any stories about the exclipse. We're supposed to get so many visitors here in Oregon that officials predict the entire state will be in gridlock with too many cars on the roads. People might be stuck in traffic for days! Impress your family with your preparedness for any situation: food / snacks / water / first aid kit / entertainment.
I hope you're having a good summer!
Edit: Added a short video from the eclipse. It was weird when it got dark, except it was still light around the horizon. Like a sunset but all around us 360 degrees. Apologies for the terrible quality. :)
