10.24.2014 Partial Solar Eclipse from a friend


A friend from college days, David H. Hathaway, works in NASA’s Ames Research Center in California.  If you are interested in such things, here is his website related to solar physics.  The other day he had the good fortune to have relatively clear skies and a good view of the eclipse.  I mentioned to Jim that I would try to share his image and David said fine.Dave Hathaway's Eclipse photoThe sunspots are the source of what David says are the largest solar flares in ten years, but they are not coming in our direction.

    Remarkable shot. At first I thought there was something on his lens 🙂


  2. Jim in IA says:

    That is a wonderful image. Thanks for posting it.


  3. When he posted it I thought of you, Jim.


  4. Really nice. As I think I mentioned, the clouds had not departed by the time the sun fell below our horizon yesterday … perhaps next time! Nice solar flares as well. I wonder how they can not be coming our way if we could see them as they emitted? Perhaps in my next life I will be a solar physicist? D


  5. The orange color can serve as a portent of Halloween.

    We had broken clouds, and there was just enough time for me to give the pinhole method a try. How I’ve missed out on that, I don’t know, but it was clear that, had I given my technique more thought, I could have gotten a really nice image. As it was, a utility bill envelope and a white flower pot did just fine. At least I could see the “bite” taken out of the sun.
