Perhaps the uncredited art student who holds the world record after rediscovering a discarded can of beer with photographic paper inside, may have made the longest running photograph in history.

Photographer Regina Valkenburg combined a beer can and a piece of photographic paper to make a super-low-punch camera eight years and one month ago. What she didn't realize was that she might have made the world's longest exposure picture ever taken

Valkenburg was experimenting with low-quality photography and long exposure when she decided to try her pinhole camera near the telescope at the University of Hertfordshire's Bayfordbury Observatory.

"I tried this technique several times at the observatory before, but the photos were often damaged by humidity, and photographic paper was damaged," said Valkenburg, who now works as a photography technician at Barnet College and Southgate.

The beer can, rediscovered by Bayfordbury Observatory's chief technical officer, David Campbell, provides the small aperture needed for long exposure photography while protecting the photographic paper from the elements while exposing it to sunlight.

"It was a stroke of luck that the photo was untouched, so David would save her after all these years," Valkenburg added.

This stunning image charts the sun's path across the sky since 2012, displaying about 2,953 arcs of light. The telescope's dome can be seen, but thousands of solar arcs steal the view.

Although the new record has not yet been officially confirmed, the previous record for the longest displayed picture belongs to German artist Michael Wesley, who took a photo over a period of four years and eight months.

Wesley is best known for his ultra-long exposure photography, including his portrayal of the restoration of the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York City.
