Gorgeous!
I love the "heat" of the second one.

Hi Stephen,
I really like these and your artistic additions, so very well done for the excellence.

Lucky you and your driveway, as just before midnight here/tonight my neighbour decided to light a bonfire of garden-refuse in his drive-way and very close to my observatory, where my CCTV and alarm-systems at my observatory alerted me of the fire and flames and flaming-debris were floating over the observatory or even coming from it.

Luckily I'm well armed with suitable fire-extinguishers and fire-trained too, so quickly put-down the major-part of the fire when the fire-service also arrived and completed the task.

I could well have saved my observatory and no doubt some hard-earned astro-gear too...

What we astro/Solar guys and gals have to do for our hobby...??

Regards
Terry

Hi Stephen,

Very good, but it looks like it is from yesterday ? as teh big spot today was much farther away from the limb ...

Thanks for the pics Stephen - I hope all is well in your world?
BTW I have enjoyed your bird photos - there is a name for bird watches but it escapes me - Bill Oddie (Goodies) is one - twitter?

Lovely, especially the white light I think, dramatic!
