Eclipse Selfie

"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”!
