USING a pinhole camera invented by a friend, an astronomer collated this stunning montage of the sun over the River Tyne, in Corbridge.

Daniel Monk, senior astronomer at Kielder Observatory, tied a 'Solar Can' to a tree trunk on the river bank in the village and left it in place for two months.

The camera collected the sun's path across the sky over the two-month period and highlighted how the sun's altitude changes over time. The sun's reflections can also be seen in the Tyne.
