Partial solar eclipse

10 Jun 2021 One-minute read

To catch the partial solar eclipse at noon today, a colleague at work reminded me to use a skimmer (a spoon with lots of tiny holes), to project the sun on a clean surface, for example good quality paper.

That will not work well when there are many clouds.

What does work, is taking a picture with a smartphone:
