Solstice Saturday Sunshine

Post by David_The_Bears_Fan » Sat Jun 22, 2019 2:59 pm

Weather has been pretty rough here in the UK for a few weeks now, that combined with work and limited / no solar activity have meant a bit of a break for me over the last few weeks. Woke up to sunny skies this morning though and despite the lack of activity I decided I needed a solar fix :D

With so little activity here's 3 different views of the quiet solar disk in Ca-K
