A rare apparition during this quite period, don't hesitate to have a look.

One hour after my sketch a significant eruption came from the group,

here's the SDO image

Thank you for that sketch! I looked at the sun a few day ago and saw nothing but a white disc.

And because I know that some of you like the comparison, here a photo made by a friend of mine at the Bauduen Observatory one hour and a half before my sketch.

Made via a similar refractor, we can see that our eyes are not as affected by the turbulence than the cameras.

Great to see some activity on the Daystar--nice sketchwork!  You can't look at the same sunspot twice.  cool.gif

Michel,

 

 

Very nice sketch of these spots.

If the sun ever popped out here I would likely faint and then when I stand back on my feet get a scope and filter and have a look.waytogo.gif

Michel,

 

This beautiful solar sketch warmed me up with that fine color.

The weather folks tell me I might get to see the sun tomorrow.

Nice cascade of sunspots you are tracking here.
