Very nice Mariosi; once again I have to check, photo or sketch? Very well drawn and I like the progression you captured over four days. So nicely done :D

Here's hoping we're almost out of solar minimum!

All the best,

Hello Marios. These are wonderful solar sketches from 2016, and especially the large sketch of AR12529. Things are a little sparse right now on old sol, but I hope the active regions revive again soon. Thanks for sharing this fine work with us on here Marios, and congratulations on being selected for the TSS APOD award.
