The Global Project Of Solargraphy, Art and Science combine! 
As I was reading Ian Musgrave Astroblog, he was talking about a project with pinhole cameras that he recently joined and made for him self the cameras and all. I became curious!

The Global Project of Solargraphy purpose is to find out how different the paths of the Sun are around the world. The project manager Tarja Trygg from Finland invites anyone to take part in this mapping of the Sun seen from different latitudes.
The goal of the project is to create pinhole cameras "solargraphs" all over the world and build a World Map of Solargraphs. It is not possible to do this alone. That is why the help of  Volunteers around the world has been very important. 
They have placed pinhole cameras at various latitudes in various countries. The only way to make this art of pinhole photography project to work is with collaboration. Experience the magic of Solargraphs - Photographs Like You have Never Seen. You can have more details of how to make a pinhole camera and details on installation, exposures periods and after exposing HERE.

For my part I will start to make my own Pinehole Camera and send my data to tarja for her real cool project!
Clear skies Everybody!
