Those were the Days my Friends

Hi,

A bit Off Topic. After having read Alexandra's message see below
lotsofspots.JPG

I searched for articles about that and in one they mentioned that the last Spot maximum was in April 2014. So I searched my images and guess what ? I found one from April 15 2014.

Hopefully we will get this again but looks like there are predictions which say the next one will be the lowest in 200 years. Well we all know what predictions are :lol:

Image April 15 2014 with the same filters as of today

Amazing!!! :hamster: this really made me smile :) what is more amazing is that I recognise that circular spot and filament, I know I have an image of that somewhere, does that mean I memorised them all and that my brain can remember all their distinct features.
