AR1057 Sketch March 27th
      #3708516 - 03/27/10 02:02 PM

Hi,

I posted this sketch of AR1057 in the Solar Observing forum. A nice sunspot group and a big one, too. The sketch was done at the scope on Strathmore sketch paper with HB, 2B, and 6B pencils. I flipped the sketch horizontally after scanning to conform to standard convention.

Clear skies,

Michael,

Very nice detailed sketch. It has been so long since I have looked at the sun I'll need to hunt down my solar filter.
Beautiful!

Frank

Thanks, Frank. You'll want to find that filter--the Sun is waking up.

Roland, T5--thanks. That AR is persisting, so you can still get a good look at it.

Thanks, Lynn. I highly recommend getting some kind of a solar filter. With the Daystar finally coming out of minimum, there will be more and more to see in white light and Halpha.

Jim Ferreira posted this WL image in the solar forum. It's interesting to compare to my sketch.
