Pinhole camera and color TV

Posted 4:49 p.m. Monday

Leesa Moore, WRAL-TV director of news operations, sports and special projects shares this memory: 

I remember viewing the 1970 eclipse using a contraption we made in school with a shoebox and aluminum foil.

I believe it hit mid-day on a Saturday as I stood in my backyard in Fayetteville. CBS broadcast the eclipse in color.
