Solar Eclipse 2015

Start of solar eclipes. Photo taken with iPhone through protective glasses. Yes. I kept the glasses from 1999 for just this purpose. You didn’t?

Projection attempt 1: Sun shining through a piece of aluminium foil with holes in it. What did I expect? X-) Wait for it…

Oooh, shiny! Tiny suns being projected through several holes in aluminium foil! *Squint* Proves that anything opaque with tiny holes in it can project a solar eclipse. No civilization or protective glasses necessary, it can be the gap between a stone age person’s fingers!

Towards the middle of the eclipse. Photo taken with iPhone through a tinted glass pane + detached camera lens that my colleagues had brought.

Projection attempt 4: “This is the worst plastic pocket telescope that I ever bought for 2 Euros! *turns it around* Ooops heheh.” Kidding, of course it works!

End of eclipse. Photo taken with iPhone through a tinted glass pane + detached camera lens again, but blurry because I failed holding it all together while pressing the button.
