At the campus of French engineering school Ecole Supérieure des Mines de Paris sits this astronomical sculpture by Jean Salins, who created it in 1980. Four times a year, when our planet is in the appropriate alignment with the sun, the shadow it casts onto the ground spells out either “solstice” or “equinoxe.” [via Neatorama]
