Twice a year it came out of the river, always stopping in exactly the same place, no matter what was there. Buildings, vehicles, animals, anything there would be crushed - but it never went any further, and anything along the way was avoided.
There it would stand for an hour, and then return to the river.
No one knew why, or where it came from, or where it went. But they all agreed that it had a beautiful singing voice.
You wondering why none of us are worried? Well, it has been doing this for as long as folks have been here. Probably longer.
We've had wars come through, and it pays no attention. Mind you, if you shoot something at it, it will come straight back at you!
As for the crushing thing, well a few years back Old Harry left his ute there when he was on a bender. Only reason insurance paid up was that it was worth so little to begin with.
Then there was that developer guy from out of town. Tried to stand his ground. Barely even a smear left after.
What was he doing there? Well someone sold him that plot, didn't they? Never did find out who. Yeah, Old Harry does have a nice car now, why? You interested in making a deal?
The Solarcan Puck is a great little reusable solargraphy camera. It has a relatively wide aperture (f/90), so it can create a decent image in a single day. The limitation is that it has (for a camera of this type) a relatively narrow field of view - about 120 degrees. This means that if you have it mounted vertically, you are going to be able to record angles up to 60 degrees above the horizon. This is fine if you are above about 50 degrees latitude. At about 50 degrees, the sun will never be higher than about 60 degrees above the horizon. Why that value? Probably because of where Solarcan are based: in Scotland. What do the the rest of the world have to do then? You can restrict yourself to winter months - but that is not much fun. The other alternative is to angle your Puck upwards. But how far? In the worst case, on the Equator, the sun will be directly overhead at Solstice. This means that the Puck will have to be angled upwards at least 30 degrees - but this would mean tha
