The Sunshine Recorder

This instrument on an observation deck caught my eye. Like a magnifying glass, the sphere directs sunlight into a marked card. The light burns through the card for an accurate measurement of the sunlight’s duration. Even without looking at it, I can tell that the sun was out for a really long time.
