    So for the transit of Venus today I wanted to make a pinhole camera to see the sun. I didn't have any boxes that were long enough, until I figured out I could make one out of beer boxes. I ended up using a bunch of Sucaba and Parabola boxes that I taped together and it actually worked reasonably well. In the last picture you can see Venus as a tiny, pretty difficult to discern dot near the edge of the sun around 5 o'clock.

    And after drinking all the beer that was in the boxes, WillCarrera thought it would be a good idea to stare directly at the sun. Poor soul...

    Edit: Excellent idea!
