Solar Flares?

Solar Flares?

I was visiting my family in NY and went outside to see the stars. They're always more visible there than in PA where I live. I was in complete awe! I can't afford a nice DSLR yet so I downloaded a long exposure app for my phone and started fiddling with it. When I went inside, I reviewed the pictures and showed them to my dad. He said something about the aurora borealis and that made me think of solar flares. Then I remembered that there were solar flares that morning! I took more pictures the next night and there was nothing on the camera. So I'm guessing I caught the remnants of a solar flare on my iPhone :)

It's possible that is what you caught. Keep it!
