Determine when SQL Principal and Mirror Flipped

We are using mirroring between two SQL 2005 Standard edition installations. ServerA is the host of the principal database. ServerB is the host of the mirrored version.

Is there a way to determine the history of flips? Meaning how do we determine when the databases have flipped. We don't see a specific eventid and even so it would be nice to see this in a report or a SQL query. The reason it flipped would be even better!

Thanks :)

Technically this works. Except this makes you scroll through thousands of entries since it creates one every minute. There's got to be a way to run a SQL query to find this information out.
