I was thinking that this could be a thread that people can post their images of the sun. Since it is fascinating, and effects us all. Also, just because, and for research purposes. To have pictures to compare to later on, and also to prove/disprove brightness, dimness, whiteness, redness, yellowness theories.

I am not posting these pictures because I think there is anything lurking about our sun. I do think I caught a lot of lens flares.

I used my cell phone for these photos, but will get my camera out to capture more. I used Corel Paint Shop Photo Pro X3 to upload my pictures and other than doing an adjust-auto-correct have not altered them at all.



This one was taken at sunset, I was inspired to take it because of a thread on ATS where a member said they don't see red sunsets anymore.



Another sunset caught on my drive home..



Morning sun on my way to work.



Another morning sun, with lens flare. This one was taken this morning.



And finally the sun taken about an hour ago (11:30 cst)

I am going down to the coast this weekend and will take my camera with me so that I can add more pictures. I really hope that ATS members from all over the world will post their pictures of the sun, at all times of the day.

I am located in South East Texas, about 40 mile southwest of Houston.


Someone please tell me how to make my pictures smaller! I added them straight from ATS uploads.

Don't be mean.
My last camera was a potato.

I usually scale pics down with a free online photo editor before uploading here.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.



I'm not an astronomer or astrophysicist but, that said, I have to ask question the relevance of this "experiment"? Taking random of shots of , well ....... daylight ....... doesn't really seem to accomplish much of anything.

I would imagine that actual photos of the sun itself would be more suited for any sort of experiment but.....and this is a big BUT....

DO NOT LOOK AT THE SUN DIRECTLY

DO NOT TAKE PHOTOS OF THE SUN DIRECTLY using a standard digital camera or a SLR camera without appropriate lens

USE A POTATO TO TAKE PICTURES OF THE SUN IF POSSIBLE I would love to see that. extra DIV

As much as I enjoy looking at picture of the sun, I like seeing solar analemma's the most. Here is a thread with different analemma's to enjoy!
