Seeing is Believing


   So I told my evening class that there was a sunspot so large it could be seen with the naked eye. The Sun was still more than an hour from setting when I set up my camera on the steps behind the Science building. As my students came outside I handed them each a pair of ‘eclipse glasses’, and they were all able to confirm that they were able to see the sunspot.
