The Sun 24th June

Post by Cliff »

It was a miserable rainy morning but fortunately conditions improved in the afternoon.
The nice Sunspot seems likely to quite soon be going off the Sun's visible disc soon.
Three Sun images now attached : -

Good views here Cliff to say that the seeing was below par with high humidity on the 24th. The faculae at the following limb were quite noticeable in my little refractor and I was surprised at the lack of spots among the faculae. Your H-alpha image shows activity at that limb. Regards, Bob

Looking online it seems like there may be some spots coming on at the following limb, presumably where you saw the faculae.

Bob & Skybrowser Thanks for your comments.
From my point of view the past couple of weeks were very enjoyable for Sun observing allowing me to observe & image the Sun & track the splendid Sunspot on 9 of the 12 days it was on the visible side of the Sun. I was lucky enough to get my initial image when the Sunspot was on the very limb of the Sun. Unfortunately I was clouded out on yesterday (25th June) when I half hoped to image that Sunspot on the very West limb.
But surprise, surprise, more Sunspots on the 26th June.
Best of luck from Cliff
