    • Malaki na actually yung holes ng strainer. Ideally you would want a small hole to produce a sharp image, although if it gets too small, you may no longer have enough light to produce good contrast. The distance from the pinhole to the projection screen (wall) also affects the quality of the image produced. Always best to experiment :)

  1. The strainer, and even the hand, to project the eclipse– what a great Idea!

    Wonderful website!
