How to See the Eclipse: Create a Pinhole Viewer, Watch On-line, etc

As a scientist I thought I'd share the ways you can enjoy the eclipse today. BTW, its ridiculous to believe the claims of some "religious people" who claim it's the world's end. Eclipses happen all the time. Here's how you can watch it.

 How to See the Eclipse: Create a Pinhole Viewer, Watch On-line, etc

Since the first total Eclipse that traverses the U.S. from west to east happens today (and it's the first time in 99 years), here are some resources to help you experience it.
This graphic shows the BEST TIMES to experience the eclipse across the USA
The eclipse enters the United States at 10:15 a.m. PDT off the coast of Oregon and exits the U.S. at approximately 2:50 p.m. EDT in South Carolina.

RULES: Never look directly at the Sun without proper eye protection. You can seriously hurt your eyes and even go blind.

Projecting the Sun through a box projector, or using binoculars or telescope, or simply 2 pieces of card is a safe and easy way to view a solar eclipse.

DIY: Simple Card Projector:  The simplest and quickest way to safely project the Sun is with a projector made from only 2 pieces of card or paper.

You Need:  2 pieces of stiff white cardboard, e.g. 2 paper plates; alternatively, 2 sheets of plain white paper;  a thumbtack, a sharp pin, or a needle

What to Do:

  1. To make a quick version of the pinhole projector, take a sheet of paper and make a tiny hole in the middle of it using a pin or a thumbtack. Make sure that the hole is round and smooth.
  2. With your back towards the Sun, hold 1 piece of paper above your shoulder allowing the Sun to shine on the paper.
  3. The 2nd sheet of paper will act as a screen. Hold it at a distance, and you will see an inverted image of the Sun projected on the paper screen through the pinhole.
  4. To make the image of the Sun larger, hold the screen paper further away from the paper with the pinhole.
A box projector works on the same principles, it requires a little more time and a few extra items to construct, but it is more sturdy.

 

A Review I like from Amazon UK: Pets and the Afterlife 2 by Rob Gutro

Here's a really wonderful review I like from Amazon UK about my second book about how pets communicate from the other side: Pets and the Afterlife 2 by Rob Gutro. 
  I'm so honored that people around the world are finding comfort from my books.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read !!, 30 July 2017
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pets and the Afterlife 2: Signs from Pets That Have Passed (Kindle Edition)
This book invaluable to gain a greater understanding that when a pet dies that all is not lost. In fact they are still around and with you. There are so many evidences in this book from numerous sources.
The book has been a great comfort to me and I have already witnessed amazing signs from Pie, my dog, in spirit and continue to do so.
The book is really well written and highly recommended.

A Look at Ghosts and Spirits and Religions vs. Spirituality

Today we'll look at religion and spirituality. This is a serious issue because being too steadfast in a belief has caused people to remain Earthbound.  

RELIGIONS AND SPIRITUALITY
Most people use religion as a base to develop a faith. Then they grow from it. That's the way it should be, if you want to grow spiritually. Remember that religions were all conceived by mankind. Spirituality is the energies within and around us. 

That's not saying you can't belong to a religion and be spiritual. You can, although most people leave religions because of constraints.

CONSTRAINTS I ENCOUNTERED - As a former catholic, when I was growing up I was told that talking to the dead is actually talking to the "devil." (Baptist religions still believe this) That's ridiculous. It's also something that was discouraged because the churches couldn't control what you heard.   Besides, I have no "evil motive" when I convey messages. They are messages from loved ones in spirit (people and pets). I don't know the people I get messages for and often never see them again.
*What's new in 2015: Britain's Psychic World newspaper in its July edition says there are "Major changes to Roman Catholic views as The Vatican says it is OK to talk to the Dead." - per Rev. Gino Concetti, chief theological commentator for the Vatican Italian journal. "L'Osservatore Romano".

DANGERS - As someone who has been able to communicate with ghosts and spirits since I was 13, I've heard a lot from people on the other side about how constraints of religion made their life and the lives of the people around them very unpleasant (during their time on Earth).  Often times, an Earth-bound ghost or spirit will ask their family or friends for forgiveness because the ghost or spirit mis-treated others because of their strict religious beliefs.

WHY IS A MORE "CONSERVATIVE RELIGIOUS" PERSON MORE LIKELY TO BE AN EARTH-BOUND GHOST? - Religions teach that if you do something wrong in life and feel like you can't be forgiven, or generally live your life as a not-so-good, not-so-caring person, you'll go to "Hell."  So, whenever very "religious" people die, often times I've encountered them as ghosts because they are horrified that they will see hell on the other side of the light (which is ridiculous). So, people who are "conservative religious" are afraid to go into the light once they pass for fear of going to a hell. Hell, ironically, is remaining trapped as an Earth-bound ghost for eternity.

SIDE NOTE ABOUT THE DANGERS OF BEING SO "STRICT" IN A BELIEF-  
1) A friend's father was an ultra-conservative Baptist who made his family's life miserable. He didn't mind beating his kids either "in Jesus' name," and because his preacher told him it was acceptable to do so (this was in the 1960s and 1970s). He also didn't mind giving away a lot of the family's income to the church, so they struggled to pay bills. That's warped and dangerous.  If a religion causes someone to put their church before the equal and kind treatment of others, than it's a dangerous "religion." 
DANGERS TODAY: Even today, there are still a few "preachers" who have told parents it's acceptable to beat up children who are gay, in the name of Jesus. Look it up on the Internet. It's appalling.

2) Another friend who is gay, was put through an exorcism by his ultra-conservative religious parents. That ridiculous act was emotionally traumatic to my friend as a young man. This is an extreme case where a sect of religion warped the views of people.

3) Many "ultra-conservative religious" people across the U.S. who learned their child is gay either threw the kids out on the street  (which is pure evil) in the name of their god, or have driven their children to suicide. I know several friends who wanted to commit suicide because of parents who were so strict in their religious beliefs. 
    So, there's a danger in being so "firm" in your beliefs, especially when it opens the door to harm others in any way. Grow from your faith, welcome and love all others, especially those who are unlike you. Show the LOVING side of your religion. Accept everyone. Love everyone. Put yourself in their shoes.
