Actually this is not a picture of clouds but the side of my shop (tent) during the eclipse. The shadows were amazing...

Wow David. I thought for a minute that you were showing us a Black and White of some burl you had. :D

I have never been able to see that except one time when I was too young to remember it. I think twice we could have seen something close here in MN but it was cloudy or what not. Do you have any more pictures you could post?

That is pretty neat. So why was that happening? Were the spaces between the leaves acting as pinholes that were focusing an image of the eclipse on the ground?

Very interesting, David,

Like Phil, I am wondering what was reflecting those images. Dew on the leaves?

My neighbor taught us a new trick. He used a mirror, aimed at the sun, and reflected the eclipse image on the side of a neighbors house. Worked great. No pinholes in paper, no shoeboxes needed. He got it off the internet.

Guess you CAN teach an old dog new tricks. The eclipse was very visible in my area, cloudless day.
