February 22 2021. WL only.

Post by DeepSolar64 » Mon Feb 22, 2021 6:43 pm

Session time is intermittently between 1:05pm and 1:34pm EST local time ( US ). The skies are mostly cloudy. Seeing is a bit below average but better than the last couple of days. The temperature is 46F.

Orion 70mm Solar Telescope. 27.5x and 83x ( WL )
A new northern active region west of AR12803 has emerged and developed spots. I can see 4. Seeing makes it difficult but I think I can hint a penumbra around the largest one. Three spots are easy to see and the 4th, a tiny pore can barely be seen during very brief moments of better seeing.

A new AR has also developed in the southern hemisphere almost due south of the new northern AR. I can see three tiny spots in it. I think I can glimpse a small pore very close to the SE side of the largest spot in the group but seeing makes it difficult to tell for sure. I also think I can see a penumbra associated with the largest spot. I need better seeing and no clouds to study them!

Granulation is barely detectable.

Happy Sungazing!

James

Yes, WL seems a shade more exciting to view with all these spots all of a sudden, I'm glad you managed to get a glimpse :hamster:
