I managed to do some sketching despite looking through clouds, haze, trees, and blowing snow.

Here's the sunspots:

TenthEnemy,

These are both excellent solar sketches. I would have guessed you would be too busy shovelling snow to sketch. :bow: :cool:

Frank :)

Well made H alpha observations. That big AR is still popping and crackling according to Spaceweather. Unfortunately, my terrestrial weather is interfering. :p

How did you make these sketches? Is the first one on gray paper?

Thank you for the comments everyone!

Both of these sketches are on white paper, it just looks gray from my camera settings. The first sketch is graphite, ink, and white charcoal. The second sketch is graphite that I inverted and added color to.
