Images of the solar eclipse of August 1, 2008 projected on a piece of white paper on a bench in a gazebo that also serves as a grape arbor in Baikonur, Kazakhstan. The images are formed as a result of the “camera obscura” effect, by light passing through small gaps between the grape leaves that grow on vines that surround the gazebo.
