As most people know, today is when then partial solar eclipse occur. Since I am in Kuala Lumpur, the process started at approximately 4:31:32 pm, mid-eclipse at 5:50:42 pm and ended at 6:58:55 pm.
Viewing the sun without safety filters can cause a permanent eye damage or blindness. Since I did not get myself an appropriate visual aid like the solar eclipse viewer or anything, I improvised by doing some research on the internet on alternative to view this magnificent moment.
And so I made a backyard science project on safe way to view. These are the steps I followed...
1. Prepare a piece of white cardboard, a piece of aluminium foil, a pin, a sheet of white paper, masking tape, penknife, scissors, ruler and pencil.
