Eclipse on the Vardo

Getting ready for the eclipse tomorrow?  MAKEzine has again linked to our little Vardo. We were fortunate to get a really neat lighting effect during the 2012 eclipse playing over our camp.

eclipsevardoLight coming through the trees created a pinhole effect focusing the eclipse in dozens of images as we were packing to leave.

As we slide around the sun for yet another year we can experience a little science and scale and think about our place in the solar system.  If you are interested in learning more, check out NASA’s Eclipse Page by clicking the banner below:
