December sunrise

Looking east from Wilson Hall on an early December morning, you may have seen the sunlight pushing its way through purply clouds.

As TMBG helpfully explains in “Why Does the Sun Shine?”, the sun is mass of incandescent gas, a gigantic nuclear furnace. This picture should be the illustration for that song.

This image of the Proton Pagoda is a five-month-long exposure taken with a pinhole camera was made from an aluminum can and a sheet of photo paper. It was taken from June to November and shows the sun’s path every day in that period.

This Fall Friday photo may not depict the actual road to paradise, but the way the sun’s rays stream across the street, you could be forgiven for thinking you were on the path to wonderland.
