This morning's sun - 5 July.

Post by smerral »

Well the mist cleared enough for a few shots this morning. First the full disc, followed by AR11515 in Ha, then AR11515 and AR11513 in Cak. This time I've given the Cak an orange colour for a change. :)

Thanks Brian for showing your very detailed images.
The first one is more or less what I saw today.
But the enlargements show wonderful detail far finer than I can see visuallly.

The weather has not been clear for ages, so I have missed several days, both with the PST and also with night observations.

Best regards, David

Is this the bright light I saw in the sky today? Thought it might be a Higgs boson :shock:

Lovely images as always ,

As usual Brian, your solar images are amazing.
How does a standard PST fair. Could you do a comparison. Just to nudge me towards a PST some time soon.

Cheers for sharing, Eddie

Next time I see some sun I'll give it a go Eddie. :)

I have been keeping an eye (well not eye as such) on the things going on with the sun this month, the very large explosions that are happening on it, and the 4 grade type radiation heading our way on the 7th 8th July. Already our HF radio broadcasts are really bad, lots of noise, but little radio contacts on most HF bands since 5th July.
