Hi.

The weather model was telling clouds in the afternoon. So this morning at 8:30am after my night shift at -18º C, I sketched the sun before going to bed. And this afternoon, the sky is overcast !!!

Very nice! Again some big flares on top of the disk! And apart from cold-resistant you're also sleep-resistant... You're one of a kind, André! :bow:

Cheers,

Peter

Andre,

My hat is off to you for such a fine sketch.
It is -17 C here and I was outside for 5 minutes looking at a very unsteady sky. It is far too cold for sketching, almost too cold for a brief look at anything through a scope. I admire your fortitude!

Frank :)

Thank you Peter and Frank, well appreciated.

Frank, I stayed one hour outside. Fifteen minutes prior the sun was high enough to enter my dome, I watched the sun in my small 3" scope analyzing the surface details.
