The naked eye view of the Sun through solar eclipse glasses and detailed view of AR 2214 through a refractor telescope with a white light filter – November 20, 2014

Object Name (Sun)
Object Type (Sun photosphere)
Location (Artignosc-sur-Verdon/France )
Date (2014/11/20)
Media (graphite pencil (sketrch down) and watercolor (full sun up) on white paper, Paint.net)
The old sunspot 2192 is now making its second pass across the face of our sun with a new number : 2214.
It’s the first time that I can see a spot naked-eye after a complete sun rotation. For the inverted watercolour shown here up, I use special glasses for eclipse, the orange color is this of my glasses, you can see some mist in the foreground meaning that the conditions were not perfect. For the telescope view I use a white light objective filter, I add an orange color layer after scanning.

Clear sky to you all !
