Safe methods for viewing solar eclipse

NYC will have a PARTIAL Eclipse. Two safe ways not directly looking at sun with your back towards sun:

A pinhole camera with cardboard with a center pen point size puncture and a dark stiff paper / cardboard behind the pinhole.


Take your binoculars and invert with cardboard shield over  one lens (front) onto a dark or light  stiff paper or cardboard. Shield acts as a light block.But first cutout a stiff cardboard that fits over the front lens of the binoculars.your shield.

See this link for pics and BE SAFE! SUN Can blind you!

Hope for clear skies at peak viewing 2:45 peak halfways mark.(120 starts ,before 4pm end)
