ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Families turned out to Thronateeska Heritage Center to prepare for the upcoming total solar eclipse.
The center hosted a workshop for parents and kids to craft pin-hole projectors.
Crafters used cardboard boxes, tin foil, and white paper to make a contraption to safely view the eclipse.
Many Southwest Georgia retailers have run out of proper glasses, so Hannah Beth Hembree, Program Manager, said the pinhole projector is a safe viewing alternative.
Hembree also said Saturday's Science Saturday was the biggest turnout she's ever seen.
"It's really nice to have a lot of people come out and remember that Thronateeska is here and we do care about you viewing the eclipse safely," said Hembree.
Thronateeska will host a viewing party for the eclipse Monday at 1.
