Do-It-Yourself Solar Eclipse!
Your young astronomer can create a solar eclipse in just a few seconds using materials found around the house! This experiment demonstrates how a small celestial body like the moon, can obscure the light from a much larger one, such as the sun. Invite your child to recreate this fantastic phenomenon by using a flashlight to represent the sun, a quarter as the moon, and her face as Earth!
