On August 16, 2020 I made my 9,000th solar observation. It was an 8th grade science project in 1979 that took off! In that time, I have drawn the Sun 9,000 times in white light. Recently, I have added hydrogen alpha features to make a composite drawing of white light and H alpha. The Sun is always interesting. Attached is the drawing for August 16, 2020. No sunspots, but nice filaments. Now for the next 9,000!
