Hi.

Today I just had time to catch a flare before the sun set behind a house.

Andre,

Very nice sketch. The Sun stops hanging around very long in the evening beginning in September.

Frank :)

Wow, I find most of the well-done sketchs of the sun, like yours to be extremely impressive, with the flares and surface detail...

I gotta stop viewing them, as they make me want a solar scope of my own.

Hi.

No, continue to look at my sketches and go buy a solar scope. Thanks for you kind comments and get back later today to see what I caught today. A nice flare evolving rapidly. I'm just back from my scope, I did 5 new sketches this morning and I'll probably make new ones later today.

Andre.

Great catch, André. :cool:

Nice template you are using. :waytogo:

I'm a sun addict myself. I never leave home without a little Coronado PST in the trunk of the car.

Clear skies,
