A recent visit from some locals - always interesting to watch.

The clouds moved on, and this is what we see inside the box. Not a stellar picture, but balancing the box, aiming it correctly, and manipulating the phone to take the picture was getting hilarious. You can see the "bite " the moon is taking, though. It is only a partial solar eclipse, but still not seen very often. We're glad we took the time.
We prepared two boxes: pinhole on one side, white paper on the other inside end. (As in the picture) Went outside and saw the beginning of the eclipse- lower right side of the sun with a bite being taken. Then the clouds rolled in. The second picture is where the sun is - behind the clouds. At least we saw the beginning!
