How to watch the eclipse without eclipse glassesWith the solar eclipse just days away, everyone is trying to get their hands on a last-minute pair of eclipse glasses. But what if you don't have $250 to spend on a pair because you spent too much money on pizza the night before? In a new video, Pizza Hut demonstrates how to use last night's pizza box to make your own  eclipse viewer, so you can enjoy the event without burning your eyes. All you need is a cardboard pizza box, foil, scissors, pen, tape and a sheet of white paper — all which would probably cost you less than 20 bucks. According to Business Insider, the finished product becomes a pinhole camera, which harnesses a property of light called diffraction to bend and magnify light. In this case, that's the sun as it eclipses. It won't allow you to look directly at the eclipse, but it's definitely better than hurting your eyes trying to look at the event without glasses. Sorry Pizza Hut, you could do this with any pizza box/cardboard, but kudos for trying to keep people from burning their eyes out.
