    No, I will give you a clue though as it is quite difficult<span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">and you are not too far off with the material</span hide>

    This was a Kitchen Table Science project created by Jezzarette 2. There is no heat source but there is a light source and one of the pieces of equipment used is found in my kitchen cupboard and the other in my briefcase <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15>

    oh and Hans that was quite a good guess, but the material was not from her rose!!!!

    Re: What is this?

    If I may ask two clarifying questions..........what is the light source and what is the color of said light source?

    Re: What is this?

    I will give you all the answer as it is quite a difficult one as I need more resolution on my digicam.

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> Jezzarette 2 was playing with my laser pointer that I use for teaching. Our young puddy cat loves to chase after the beam. She had been (carefully) pointing it at the mirror in the log cabin and noted that the light bounced off onto the wall. She wanted to know what would happen if she shined it on a surface where the light bounced around and back on itself. We found an old metallic foil crisp (potato chip) packet and shone the laser light into the open bag and got a fantastic light show.

    So the answer is it is a metallic foil crisp bag with a red laser light shining into it</span hide>

    So [choccy bars] to all that answered as you were all almost there ( and some made me laugh <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
