Exploratorium | Transit of Venus | How To View it Safely - 0 views

  •  
    "If you have a telescope with a magnification of 50x to 100x, you will be able to see the transit. Be sure, however, that you have the proper filter for it. Only use the filter supplied by the manufacturer or by a manufacturer who makes a filter specifically for the instrument you are using. And it must be a filter that attaches to the front end of the telescope. If you don't have a suitable telescope, you can use binoculars to make a projector.

    "First, you should firmly fix the binoculars to a tripod. You can
    do this with duct tape (what else?).

    Now,cut out a cardboard shield and tape it to the front of the
    binoculars with the lenses sticking through holes.

    Then, put the lens cap over one of the large binocular lenses or
    tape over one of the front lenses with duct tape. (You really only need one
    lens.)"

Observing the Sun for Yourself - 0 views

  •  
    There are several ways you can observe the Sun, and hopefully sunspots, for yourself. The easiest and safest is to project the Sun by building your own pinhole camera. Or, if you have your own telescope, you will need to obtain a solar filter. There are even solar telescopes online, which you can access via the web to observe the Sun.
