Sun spots

Postby bwh » 22 May 2009, 17:40

Following the Solar talk - just looked at sun with very careful precautions
- no direct looking at sun, all projected images.

And could see group of 3 or 4 spots in cluster.

Checked on web and current soho images seem to confirm this group.

Any1 know how long this group will stay in place ?
