Location:
my backyard in Buffalo, NY
Details:
I received a new camera the other day in time for LCROSS, but I was double-LCROSSed by the clouds. Here are my first light images - A full solar disk with colors chosen to show the texture of the chromosphere. A small active region can be seen just below and right of center. Also included is an image of some foliage from my backyard - illuminated by sunlight and captured in the wavelengths of infrared light.
