It is June 16 and I'm seeing a spectacular group of sunspots. My photos were taken with a white-light solar filter at about 40 and 100x magnification. I always add a little yellow, though the sun is white. And I applied unsharp masking in Photoshop to sharpen the details.
I use this blog as a companion to my website www.brightstarstemeculavalley.org, where I call attention to local light pollution and share my enthusiasm for science and astronomy. I'm also a contributor to www.SkepticalScience.com.
