Monster Sunspot turning our way
30 March 2013
Today is a hazy one, but at least it's sunny for the time being. The light thin overcast mutes the solar images, making them soft. Curious on what the sunspots of yesterday were doing, we get a nice surprise...
#1704 and friends are doing well, but look what's coming our way ....just making it's way from the limb...
I think they are giving this one #1708.
It will be a nice one to observe and promises great details to image...
The last image...looks like a gash. Ew...
Let's hope for some clear skies soon, as we are to expect rain during the next two days.
