Nice capture Robert! The sun does look blank compared to a week or so ago...

There seems to be 2 ripples in the spicules, I wonder if they will develop into anything? so not quite blank blank yet. Thanks for the view Robert and I am glad to hear there is some sunshine up there (my parents are on holiday not far away from you :) )
