Build a Sun Funnel | Venustransit.

Got a small telescope and want to SAFELY observe the transit of Venus? Build a Sun Funnel!

If your small telescope happens to be a Galileoscope (or another ‘scope with plastic lenses) you’ll want to check out this page first: http://galileoscope.org/observing-activity-guides/observing-the-sun-safely/

Not only is the Sun Funnel a safe way to observe the Sun, it can also show the Sun off to several people at once, so it’s also ideal for public events and star parties (hey, the Sun is a star!)
