Solar Photography

Here’s a photo of the sun, taken by the Super-Kamiokande observatory in Japan. A very unusual photo. It’s not natural light, infrared or ultraviolet. It’s neutrino emissions. What’s more, it was taken at night. How does one take photos of the sun at night? Neutrinos pass right through solid matter — the picture was taken through the Earth.

I love science. Thanks and a tip of the hat to Cosmic Variance for running this.
