I was perusing the Physics Forum site this morning: the photo-thumbnail on the left caught my eye momentarily. My reaction was that it is a photo taken during the Hajj at Mecca, Saudi Arabia, but why would it be placed on a physics website? Turns out it accompanied an article on magnets.

On the right is a photo of the actual Hajj with thousands of pilgrims circling the Kaaba.
