What do corn flakes have to do with a solar eclipse? Well, nothing really. But when they come in a large cereal box, then we have a connection. And that connection is Mark Paulson of Big Sky Astronomy Club, who will demonstrate how to build a safe solar eclipse viewing device using the recycled box at Whitefish Community Library on Thursday, July 27 at 10:30 a.m.
A short presentation precedes the making of viewers. Then the action begins when the kids take over the room to make viewers from the boxes, white paper, foil, tape, and instructions from Paulson, who luckily states that he “thrives on pandemonium.”
Just promise not to run with the scissors!
- Please bring a large empty cereal box for each viewer made.
- If you are comfortable bringing scissors, please do so. Our supply is limited.
- More suitable for age 5 and over, unless parent is making viewer for child.

Doc Wild is shy, Doc Wild is wild, Doc Wild will need us to be very gentle with him so we won’t scare him away, and in return he’ll tell us about the “creepies” that live in the wild with him. We hope you’ll join us in the community room. Below is a clue about what “creepies” are:
