White Light Delight

White light sketch 

Solar Photosphere: The Beginning of NOAA 10966

Faculae were on both the eastern and western limbs, showing up with nice contrast
against the limb darkening. Within the eastern facula, the spot in NOAA 10966 was
hiding so well that I nearly missed it all together. After scanning the entire disk,
I finally picked up this little pore. No signs of penumbra. Faint granulation was
observed, though.

I’ve been using copy paper and a #2 pencil for my multiple white light filter
observations. Blending done with my finger.
