Astrophysicist Recommends A Colander As The Best Way To Catch The Eclipse tIn Perth
As we’re well sure you’re aware, today is solar eclipse day. And whilst most of us in the office wish we were in Exmouth, Pete and Kymba spoke with an Astrophysicist about how to safely catch the show.
As you should hopefully know, you should NEVER stare directly at the sun, particularly during an eclipse, as there is a big risk of permanent damage.
Dr Brad Tucker from ANU recommends the humble household colander. Seriously.
“Literally, you hold the colander in one hand, a piece of paper in the other, and all the little holes will project as little sunlights so you’ll actually see multiple versions of the event.”
