Attention, Southwestern Ontario stargazers! On April 8th, prepare for a celestial spectacle as a solar eclipse graces our skies. We’ve curated resources to aid you in securing glasses, understanding the eclipse, and crafting your own safe viewing devices.

Make Your Own Viewing Device

Crafting a box pinhole projector from a cardboard box and common household items is both easy and enjoyable and makes for a great family project. It provides a safe way to view a solar eclipse and encourages kids (and adults) to learn more about the solar event.
