Of course, it's actually the sun through a really weird sky. But it makes you wonder if this is what B really looks like.

Nice! The weird colour is caused by Saharan dust transported north by ex-Hurricane Ophelia, by the way... :-)

We're just waiting for that infamous lady to say hello to us here in Cumbria.
According to the weather pundits she ought to be here by now, at roughly 1-15 pm.
The Sky is a pale Vanilla ie. yellow, and very ominous looking it is.
However, the tree leaves are hardly rustling, so perhaps she has decided to by pass us.
That would be Ideal for us, as she has really given Ireland a hard time according to reports.

Nice facsimile Michael, but thank goodness Big B'  Isn't at the same distance as our star, or we'd be inside it, and very 
crispy. Good to hear your Talk went well at Lucksall. Seems this SP was a bit better for weather than previous ones. 
About time too. :icon_biggrin:
