New Sunspots

Posted: November 17, 2006 in Uncategorized



In the morning hour, when the sky is mostly covered with fog, or at sunset we can actually see the sunspot 923 with naked eyes. The first picture is my photoshop art where I have depicted the 923 exactly where I had seen with naked eyes, the viewfinder of my telescope and the telescope itself. I watched it for just a few seconds. If I had watched for a longer time I’d have damaged my eyes. WARNING: Don’t ever try watching the sun with/without any instrument without using a proper solar filter.

Do these newly appeared sunspots pose any threat for strong solar flares? (My answer is no.)
