How to use binoculars to safely project the crescent Sun during the eclipse
A pair of binoculars, a tripod and some cardboard is all you need to make a solar projector
Solar eclipses take time. Do you want to look at the Moon slowly cross the Sun, then move away, for almost three hours, all the while wearing solar eclipse glasses? Didn’t think so.

Here’s what you need:
1 – Any pair of binoculars with tripod thread.
2 – Tripod (optional).
3 – A3-sized cardboard x2 (one should be white).
4 – Scissors.
