"I Saw the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse"
Selfies are a great way to tell your friends that; YOU WERE THERE! The August 21, 2017 eclipse will be observable on four continents. Where will you be? Why not celebrate the eclipse by taking a selfie of you and the eclipse and adding it to NASA's Solar Eclipse Flickr Group or on Instagram by using #EclipseSelfie.
There are many ways to do this:
- Take the shot with your face turned away from the sun and with the eclipse in the background .
- Project an image of the eclipse onto a flat surface using a pinhole camera then take a picture of you and the projected image.
Be creative but be safe! NEVER look directly at the sun or through your camera's view finder.
Include a brief description and the phrase, “I saw the 2017 total solar eclipse”!
