Sunspot Train new

Hi all,

Here's a look at AR1045 in white light. This amazing train of sunspots is about 14 Earth diameters in length (112,000 miles/180,320km).

Unfortunately I had to observe through a fairly thick layer of clouds so I wasn't able to see any fine detail (but at least the Sun was out ). I also did not detect the new active region, AR1046, which is near the eastern limb at about the same latitude as 1045.

The Daystar appears to be waking up.

Michael,

Nice close up, it looks great.
I had a chance during the day to look at the sun and missed it.

Frank

Thanks, Frank. I just grabbed some time between digging out of the last snowfall. Hope you get more sunny days.

We're getting the same weather--spring will be welcome. This has not been an astronomy-friendly winter in WV.

Thanks for your comments, Markus and sorry to take so long to get back to you--we've been dealing with near blizzard conditions here and no prospects for a sunny day in the forecast. I've only seen the big new active region (AR1046) online.

The scale of things on the Daystar can be mind-boggling--180,000km is almost half the distance to the Moon...
