any fancy can save your money. the cheapest... and safest... way to watch, might we are just four days away from the solar eclipse and if you don't have any fancy glasses, save your money. the cheapest and safest way to watch might be in your home. kpix 5's kiet do shows us some easy ways to turn common household items into a solar show. >> reporter: i'm holding in my hands one of the most coveted items on the planet right now. these are solar eclipse viewing shades. and they are one of the very few ways that you can actually look directly at the sun and i got to say, this is really cool. [ laughter ] >> reporter: but if you think that you can actually go to the store on the even go online and order this with overnight shipping, forget about it. it's not going to get to your house in time. i spent a couple of hours today trying to call around to the local stores here. nobody has these. however, you do have some options. this sounds crazy, but one of the business alternatives to viewing the eclipse is with a colander. this beats the single pinhole
6:55 pm
camera you see people do with plates. all of these holes cast dozens of shadows on the ground. you can adjust the focus by moving the height of the colander back and forth. >> the pinholes will project an image on the sidewalk of the eclipsed neighborhood. you will be a hero and it's a fashion accessory. >> reporter: get a small piece of cardboard and cut a hole in it about the size of a dime and find something with a small mirror, put the cardboard in front of the mirror and voila! >> practice on saturday and sunday. catching an image of the sun in that mirror, practice on saturday and sunday and reflect it on a wall. so on monday when we see the eclipse, if you are good at doing this and you do need to practice, you would become the hero of the entire street if you are showing this off. here in the bay area, the eclipse will start at 9:01 a.m. on monday.
6:56 pm
the maximum eclipse will be at 10:15 a.m. that's when three-quarters of the sun will be covered. and the eclipse is over about 11:37 a.m. so you have a lot of time in there to go outside and catch a glimpse of the sky spectacular. >> reporter: in san jose, kiet do, kpix 5. >> safety first. our ken bastida ready to go. amazon couldn't guarantee his eclipse glasses to protect his eyes so he grabbed these welding goggles instead. they were in his home. [ laughter ] >> ken will be reporting from the path of totality in oregon leading up to and during the eclipse. you can catch his reports starting saturday right here on kpix 5 news. >> yeah. safety first. >> highway 26 in central oregon is backed up 15 miles today. >> no. >> four days before the eclipse. >> oh, my. >> everybody trying to get there. >> they are going to run out of food and gas. >> all right getting that. >> for news throughout the evening, the latest news and weather, always on
