We're not in the path of the total eclipse, but we will see a partial one (60%) where we live. We built a pinhole viewer from an old box and printer paper. It's all set up and ready to go. Plus we'll watch the NASA TV live stream. My NASA TV app won't load (I think it's overwhelmed by too many requests), but I have it up and running on their YouTube channel.
Not too exciting, but it'll be nice to see our son experience it.
We decided to go with the pinhole viewer and TV viewing instead of the glasses because of all the fake eclipse glasses out there. It's just not worth risking our vision. (I'm already blind in one eye, I don't want to take any chances with the other...)
What is everyone else doing for the eclipse?

Daughter and I drove up to Wyoming (from Colorado) to see the total eclipse which was absolutely breathtaking! A huge cheer went up from the massive crowd at the first second of totality! Watching darkness fall, birds fly calling loudly, and feeling the temperature drop...once in a lifetime thrill. Roads were packed and slow getting home...ready for a nap (I wish) after an amazing day!
