Back to back PST sketches
      #4416029 - 02/27/11 10:08 PM

Hi,

I was able to make two H alpha sketches of the Sun within 24 hours of each other (although clouds cut the second observation short). A pair of active regions had just emerged around the eastern solar limb, so it was interesting to see them evolve. It was cloudy overnight, so I'm just getting out there whenever there is a hole in the clouds whether it's daytime or nighttime. The sketches can be seen here in the Solar Observing forum.

Both sketches were done on black Artagain paper with gray and white Conte' crayon, white Derwent watercolor and Graphtint pencils, and a charcoal pencil. The second session was frustrating because clouds kept obscuring the Sun--a good lesson in patience.

Thanks, Frank. There are some very large AR's on the Sun right now, but we're having one of those bad weather weekends...

Michael,

An excellent pair of H-alpha sketches. You have recorded the sunspot groups very nicely. I look forward to your future observations.

Carlos
