The Sun 2012-05-12


Recommended Posts

The Sun from yesterday. Sunspot 1476 was a beauty to watch, but the lasting memory of yesterday are the two giant prominences which appeared on both sides of the sun, the biggest ones I've seen during my years as a solar observer, perhaps as big as 8-9 globes on top of each other. It's fantastic that the Sun is so active now and let us hope for a similar show during Venus transit on June 6.
