Jan. 6, 2013 Sunspots
After seeing a picture of the Sun with a dozen sunspots on Spaceweather.com, I immediately reached for my Lumix camera and 70mm refractor telescope + baadar solar filter to get an afocal image of the phenomenon. The sight was amazing! Three years ago, I regularly observed the sun via projection method and recorded the number of sunspots before going to work. But I’ve never counted more than 10 sunspots! This is just a proof that the sun is at its solar maximum cycle.
