Hi.

After missing the first two clear days of the year, I got an unexpected short period of clear sky this morning. I stayed 90 minutes in my dome at -27 C !!! But don't worry, I was comfortable. Sun was quiet but very nice sunspots groups along the surface.

I'm not sure my pressure tuner did a great job under this low temperature. I was on the impression I was looking the sun in white light but the proms were visible. I didn't see much filament and few white spots. I didn't have time to sketch some sunspots before the clouds came back.

Andre.
