Playground Science Redux

I was surprised to come home and smell smoke. We started walking around the kitchen to try and isolate where it was coming from...and ended up at the back door. Smoke was coming from a newspaper that was sitting next to a glass fishbowl sculpture.

 

It turns out that the sun coming though our kitchen window was focused by the fishbowl onto our newspaper burning a hole thought it!!

 

I had to setup up again with a flashlight to recreate...so, no smoke. But what a crazy to loose your house to fire..."Sir, it was your fishbowl that was to blame."
