Pinhole Eclipse Crescents in Norfolk, Virginia
August 22, 2017
In Norfolk, Virginia, the call was for 86 percent coverage of the Sun by the Moon during the great eclipse of 2017. Unfortunately, at 2:41 p.m., a cloud moved across the Sun and we did not see the full effect. However, before that, using the leaves of a tree as a pinhole, the crescent shape of the Moon covering the Sun was visible on the sidewalk near my office.
