Images from nature: the crescent sun

Great picture from Eriky Haritsaratiaray taken during the partial phase of this month’s annular solar eclipse across central and eastern Africa. The leaves on a tree are forming natural ‘pinhole projectors’ and producing images of the crescent sun on the ground…


Eriky is a student at the University of Mahajanga in Madagascar, and he’s done a brilliant job helping organise our “Global Communication and Science” project this year. Thank you, Eriky!
