Sunny side up


The Sun with ARs 953 & 954

After many frustrating weeks of poor conditions, things finally let up long enough
for me to catch a few sketches of the Sun with its (also long-awaited) recent
sunspot activity. These sister ARs are quite impressive, and 953 is the largest I’ve
seen in my short observing career. I can’t wait for Solar Maximum! -æ

  1. Andy,
    Great work on these white light solar sketches
    including the limb darkening and the sunspots.

  2. Andy,
    Nice and simle sketch of the limb disk.
    I like more the smaller sketch.
