The Sun - 20th April

Post by David_The_Bears_Fan » Sat Apr 21, 2018 2:49 pm

Had one of very few recent opportunities to image the Sun yesterday. I think this is probably only my second or third this year! Fortuitous then that a nice little active region has popped up!

Nice set of images, David. Opportunities certainly have been far too few and far between. Glad you made the best of this one.

These are excellent David ! I haven't had many chances for solar observing this year too.
