My Trip to Malta

Hagar Qim on the Summer Solstice

On this one day of the year, the Summer Solstice,
the sunlight comes through the below hole in the wall and
casts a circular beam on the facing stone tablet. It becomes a crescent
and then disappears.  Notice how the hole is carved in a slanted direction.

In Memory of my Grandmother who passed away on the previous morning, June 20, 2005 at the age of 90.
