Download The clearest picture ever made by combining 150,000 photographs of the sun
The sun has always been a center of curiosity for astronomers. Space agencies around the world are also constantly sending missions to investigate the sun. Now Andrew McCarthy, an American space photographer, claims to have captured the clearest image of the sun ever. Andrew used more than 150,000 different photographs to create this image of the largest star in the solar system.
One and a half lakh photos taken in 300 megapixels:
All these photos can be seen in the final photo of 300 megapixels. It is 30 times larger than a normal 10 megapixel camera photo. One can see the sunspot in the mysterious darkness in the most close-up view. Before today, there were only a few photos of the sun, with black spots beneath its surface and even flames.
The secret of the black spot on the surface of the sun
These dark spots on the surface of the sun are not actually black. Very powerful rays emanate from these places, in which the tick appears black through the photographic process. The process of taking such a picture of the sun is very difficult. A special telescope with two filters has been used to protect the photographer from being blinded by the sun’s bright rays.
Cosmic-background photos uploaded to the Instagram channel
Andrew McCarthy also runs an account on Instagram called @ cosmic-background. Solar cosmic rays emanate from the sun. It contains high energy particles. These rays contain about 90 percent of the protons and 10 percent of the helium nucleus. Solar storms occur when they collide with the Earth’s atmosphere.
