Eclipse Shirt


Of course,
everyone is concerned about what to wear to a
solar eclipse.

No need to worry though, nature often conspires to project images
of the eclipse so that stylish and appropriate
patterns adorn many
visible surfaces - including clothing - at just the right time.

Most commonly, small gaps between
leaves on trees can act as
pinhole cameras
and generate multiple recognizable images of
the eclipse.

But while in Madrid to view the
October 3rd annular eclipse of the Sun,
astronomer Philippe Haake met a friend who had another

The result, a grid of small holes in a kitchen strainer
produced this pattern of images on an 'eclipse shirt'.
