We have had back to back days with nothing but sunshine and a deep blue sky. That TMs a rare treat in an otherwise normally cloudy month of November in central New York. The Today Show highlighted this Buffalo man for capturing some amazing photographs seen with this web story and movies of the sun in dazzling detail. This self proclaimed amateur photographer & astronomer by night is also a greeting card publisher by day so he can pay the bills.

Alan Friedman was able to capturing these sparkling images from his own backyard using a web cam, a telescope, a computer and a special hydrogen filter in front of the lens to produce these beautiful deep red images Click here for the full interview on how Alan was able to produce such quality images from home.
