Hi.

I've been able to have thin enough clouds to sketch the sun in the morning. That was unexpected on this overcast day. But never got a very clear sky, only veils. So I sketched it in very bad conditions of 1/5 caused by poor visibility. Compared to GONG image, I missed lot of details on the 9 o'clock prom.

Andre.

Interesting sunspot groups, faculae, and prominences. Thank you for sharing it with us all.
