Solar Eclipse, May 2012

In case you missed it...there was a partial solar eclipse.  Remember that you shouldn't look into the sun!  Instead, make a pinhole camera.  Or just use the leaves of a tree as your pinhole camera-the effect is neat-o!

Turning your fingers into claws

The images are very diffuse and the crescent has a very wide angle.

 In areas where there is a lot of background light, he crescents tighten up, shadows look like flowers.

Areas with more shade, the crescents come through as bright spots.
