Solar Eclipse at SB

Solarbotics Ltd
August 21, 2017

Today August 21, 2017, we were treated to about 80% solar eclipse. In spite of the smoke, the weather cooperated so we couldn't miss this event.

Pinhole projector boxes were made out of cereal and shipping boxes:

Fancy ones were mounted onto a tripod, and a phone camera recording a time lapse video was taped to the box:

And the huge walk-in pinhole projector was great:
