Partial Solar Eclipse in San Jose, CA

For today's partial solar eclipse I made a pinhole camera, so we can see the effect without risk of causing permanent damage to our eyes.

The partially obscured sun created really awesome, freaky half-round shadows of leaves.

With the right settings on the camera and the help of a welder's mask, one can even get a reasonably sharp picture of the obscured sun.
