From spacecraft Galileo:
Video below - If the stars do not move in relation to Earth, then can you see the Earth move? Look below. Watch the piece at 0:48. Does the Sun move?

- Describe how we learned about the eye and how it functions. (Give an example if you want.)
- Describe how you created the photo. What tools did you use?
- Add this standard under your reflection:
4-PS4-2.Develop a model to describe that light reflecting from objects and entering the eye allows objects to be seen. (This was the introductory activity.)

Solar Eclipse - August 21, 2017 1:28pm to 3:58 pm
The eclipse in Rye, NH will only be about 60% in totality. Here are the official times from http://time.unitarium.com/sunrise/21092
- Partial Eclipse Begin Time:13:28:40
- Time of Maximum Eclipse:14:46:12
- Partial Eclipse End Time:15:58:12
Don't have glasses to view the eclipse? I can help you with that!
Join me at RJH anytime between 10:30 - noon with a large cereal, pie or pizza box to make a projection viewer.
Here are some ways to create your own pinhole viewer and look at the projections. All of these methods require you to have your back facing the Sun, not your face!!
• Use a colander that has circular holes. Turn so your back is facing the Sun and you are looking away from the Sun. Hold the colander to the side so the light will go through the holes and project on to the ground. (You can place a large piece of white paper on the ground for better viewing.) Look at the projections on the ground or paper. You will notice the shapes will correspond to the shape of the Sun at that time of the eclipse.
• Again, with your back to the Sun, crisscross your fingers to create small holes. Hold your hands in the Sun light so the light will go through the holes. This will take a bit of maneuvering. Observe the light on the ground. The shapes will correspond to the shape of the Sun at that time of the eclipse.
• Box method - You will need a big cereal box, pie box or pizza box. Follow the directions at this website to create your own projection device.

If you do have viewing glasses, make sure they are approved for viewing. The link above will help you determine that.
