Yesterday, I wrote about our globes and maps. I thought I’d share with you an interesting activity I stumbled upon while photgraphing my globe.

I tried to get a photo of the globe in a different room since I’m always taking pictures by the same window. But this was the result.

Hmm, kinda looks like the sun shining on the earth in space. . .Hey, cool lesson!

Look, It’s daytime in Asia!

The sun is setting over the Pacific Ocean.

And here’s an eclipse. No, it’s just nighttime in North America.

If you want to try it at your home, put your globe near a window in an otherwise dark room. Don’t use the flash.

If you know how to operate your camera’s manual setting, I shot these at 18mm, 1/60, F4.5, ISO 400.
