Here in Stockholm we only got a 70% eclipse, but the weather was a beautiful summer day, so I spent the eclipse hour outside with a small telescope, using it to image the sun on a piece of cardboard. Most of the neighbourhood children appeared to watch, and I got the chance to explain a bit of optics and astronomy for them. A small thing, but becoming the trusted neighborhood scientist is a good way of spreading the memes and combatting silliness like Paco Rabanne's predictions.
