Sun Spot

This was a test run for the Transit of Venus. We rigged up a reflected pinhole, a small mirror on a tripod which sent a beam of light through our kitchen, down a short hall, and into my darkened office. As this photo shows, it worked pretty well. Unfortunately this was our test run, one day early. For the real event, the sun hid behind a cloud.
