Attached picture is my eclipse watching with a tree. Tree leaves randomly make many pinholes. The viewing screen is my car. Years ago I watched a partial eclipse in New York under a maple tree. Thousands of small eclipse images on the ground. Yesterday I saw nothing on the ground. Looked up. The tree made eclipse images are on the car. The New York images were smaller because the ground was closer to the leaf made pinholes. The eclipse in New York was overhead. Yesterday the eclipse was near the horizon. The screen needs to be perpendicular to the image.
