Hello astronomers,

This is my drawing of the sun in white light at May 19, 2013.

Object name: Sun
Object type: Star
Location: Koudekerke, Netherlands
Date: May 19, 2013
Media: Graphite pencils and processed with GIMP
Time: Around 14:00 UT
Telescope: Sky-watcher refractor (102/500mm)

First I made a fussy grey background for the sun and drew a circle. Thereafter I drawed the sunspots and the rest of the details inside the disk. I scanned the picture and processed it with GIMP for a smooth contrast and brightness.

Kind regards,
Lennart van Sluijs
