Sunspot Drawing May 12th

#1

Post by Baurice »

Our nearest and dearest star is more than capable of throwing up surprises in a short time. I bin scanned the Sun expecting to see a lot of Earth’s rotation since the previous evening and, perhaps, a little bit of solar rotation. Instead, I recorded an additional sunspot. A later look at the Learmonth images showed that the largest sunspot consisted of two plus a myriad of smaller sunspots that were below the resolution of my binoculars and certainly my camera.
