I just did the test below today outside: <br /><br />It is possible to observe the Sun safely and see sunspots by projecting its image onto a piece of white paper. All you need is 2 people, binoculars, a camera tripod, and a piece of white paper on a clipboard or poster board to make a safe sun viewer. Securely attach the binoculars to the tripod. Cover one lens of the binoculars. Now get a piece of cardboard or other stiff paper about 2 feet square and cut a rectangular hole in the middle of it the size of the binoculars. Slip it over the front of the binoculars and tape it into position. It will block the Sun's light from shining beyond the binoculars. Turn your back to the Sun so that you will not be tempted to look at it. Point the binoculars in the general direction of the Sun without looking at it. Now hold the white paper about one foot behind the eyepieces of the binoculars. Without looking at the Sun, patiently and slowly adjust the binoculars on the tripod until they point directly at the Sun and project an image of the Sun onto the white paper. The stiff paper or cardboard you slipped over the front of the binoculars will cast a shadow onto the white paper, so that you will be able to see the Sun's image easily. By the way, the image will be white, not yellow, even though the Sun appears yellow in the sky. Focus the image and, bingo! you're safely looking at the Sun without doing any damage to your eyes. With the help of a partner holding the paper, you can safely draw an image of the Sun on the paper, including any sunspots.<br /><br /><br />It's definitly pretty awesome and easy to do! I only saw a big white circle thats it though. Why couldn't I see any sunspots? Is it just because thats how the sun is at that time of day?
