Project365: Day 13 - Foucault Pendulum

Day 13 - Foucault Pendulum, originally uploaded by Tim Bungert.

We visited the Science Center of Iowa today to view the travelling exhibit "Da Vinci: The Genius." No photography was permitted inside the exhibit, so I decided to take a photo that I've been wanting to do for some time now: the Foucault Pendulum.

The Science Center is one of the stops on the Downtown Des Moines architectural walking tour that I lead during the summer months. Every time I walk by to talk about the building, I get just a little bit distracted by watching the pendulum swing closer and closer to tipping over the next peg.
