Solar eclipse through an X-ray
I went to Marina Mall to take pictures of the solar eclipse this afternoon. I must have not paid attention in astronomy class, because I was under the impression that I would be able to see the eclipse, and the world would go dark and there’d be an end-of-world feeling. This didn’t happen at all.
Anyway, I was fumbling with my camera getting bored and hot in the sun in Starbucks, when this American guy from the next table said he’ll charge me if I take a picture of them. So I said I’m just waiting for the solar eclipse. They didn’t even know about it and were all surprised. Anyway, one guy from the group said we could see it if we looked through an X-ray. So he went to his car and brought an X-ray of his leg, and sure enough the eclipse became visible.
Here’s the shots I took. The first two pictures are without the X-ray.
The poor guy has my fingerprints all over his leg X-ray now though :o)
