A gem from Rebecca’s Pocket:

Many European churches and cathedrals are set up as giant pinhole cameras. There is a tiny hole in the dome and a line inscribed on the floor inside. When the image of the sun crosses the line, it is noon local time.

This page contains photographs taken of these solar images taken during last month’s solar eclipse.
