Hello all: today a brief session after lunch before going back to the office, Calcium and WL. AR13664 has this interesting and unusual oval shape.
Great to observe !

Those are great disks, Franco! 3664 has one of the strangest set of spots I’ve seen in a long time.

Franco,
AR13664 is shaped a lot like the Egyptian cross, the Ankh. A cross with a loop at the top!

Awesome images my friend!!
