Four Steps For Creating Your Own Eclipse Ritual:
- Turn off cell phones and computers during the actual eclipse so you can witness the different phases of the eclipse without any distractions
- Engage with the science behind eclipses by using a pinhole camera (easily made from household items—even your hands can be a pinhole camera!) to see how the shape of the shadow changes from circles to crescents and back again.
- Write a letter to yourself about your life, your hopes, your dreams...your feelings at this time in your life, and on eclipse day. Label it: Do Not Open Until Next Solar Eclipse, April 8, 2024
- Spend the day with family, friends, co-workers, classmates, neighbors, or eclipse-chaser groups to turn a regular Monday into an extraordinary memory!
