Solar Camera

posted 30 Mar 2020, 02:33 by Matthew Smith
The lockdown has provided some opportunities to dig out some activities you may have never got round to otherwise!

Mr Smith found a solar camera given to him by his Dad (a keen amateur astronomer) at Christmas time and because there isn't anywhere suitable at home to put it, he has attached it to the Y2 mobile with a good view over the hills.

It will be up for a year and during that time it will capture light through a tiny pin hole on the side of the can onto photographic paper on the inside.  It will hopefully show how the sun's path through the sky changes as the seasons change.

Another reason to look forward to the 2021!!  We'll post what we find.
