I took a quick peek at the sun today through a white-light solar filter. There's an impressive string of sunspots visible. People with proper solar filters, and especially, with hydrogen alpha telescopes should have a look.
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.
