Pinhole camera, a cardboard box, draws immediate attention in final moments of this morning’s partial eclipse.

Victorians across the south Island donned special glasses or other various methods to take in the partial solar eclipse. With clear skies, Victoria had best view of the rare celestial event, with 90 per cent of the sun blocked.
