Mike Borman lives on Evansville's north side, but he trains his special camera on events 93 million miles away. On Saturday, March 10, while most Tri-Staters were enjoying a sunny afternoon, Mike had his camera trained on the sun. A giant solar flare was in progress and Mike captured some stunning pictures.
"I just so happened to be taking images of the Sun on Saturday when the flare occurred and I got some images of it." Borman said.
Attached are two images of sunspot 1429 taken through a hydrogen-alpha solar filter attached to my 4" refractor telescope."
