Tube Colors


Nope, just physics.

Which is fun too.

Specifically, thin film interference.

In our garden we have a wind chime. A present from Patty to me (via our friend Barb). The tubes are held from a wooden plate by a thin cord. Said cord broke and two of the tubes fell. Very sad.

I could repair it. We have the technology. Specifically, fishing line.

When repairing it I happened to look down a tube. And then went to get my camera.

And the rest is history a blog post.

The repaired chimes hanging in the garden.


Of course, this was already covered on the Les Cowley's Atmospheric Optics site. Which no doubt primed me to look down the tube in the first place.
