Mike's solar funnel was real crowd pleaser.

A strainer provides numerous mini images of the eclipse.

Leading up to the eclipse, EAS members did many eclipse programs, displays, TV & newspaper interviews, and safe solar viewing sessions at libraries (Dubois, Newburgh,and Alexandrian in Posey County), the Patoka Lake Nature Center, at the meeting of The North Central Region Of The Astronomical League, many schools in the area, and the Evansville Museum. Here are a few pictures from these events.
