How to Make a Box Pinhole Projector Video (Multilingual)

Except during the brief phase of totality during a total solar eclipse, you should never look directly at the Sun without proper eye protection specially designed for solar viewing. Do not use standard binoculars or telescopes to watch a solar eclipse without safe solar filters attached to the front of the device. Regular sunglasses are NOT safe for attempting to look directly at the Sun.
