My kids and I had fun watching the solar eclipse today. We weren't in the path of totality, but we had a good view from where we were. One thing we found fascinating was the way the light coming through the leaves of the crab apple tree had enough of a pinhole camera effect to make hundreds of little crescent shapes all over the sidewalk instead of the ordinary leaf patterns. 

 

Also fun was the way the eclipse light made the shadow of my daughters hand look as if she were sprouting new fingers in the spaces between her existing ones.
