NYC Partial Solar Eclipse from Madison Square Park - 21 Aug 2016A | home

  First test You can just barely see the Moon encroaching at the bottom of the image  

  Early crowds at Madison Square Park  




  Here's a good view of my setup: the cheapest binoculars Amazon has, poked through a piece of cardboard. One lens covered, the other projecting on a sheet of paper on another piece of cardboard in the shadow of the setup. Good enough to see sunspots, perfect for large gatherings. The guy just left of center has a pinhole viewer I built that morning out of a poster shipping box.
