Good white light, 18th April

Recommended Posts

Solar white light viewing is like is box of chocolates as Forest Gump might have said if he was connoisseur of this sort of thing. 

The big AR approaching the edge of the disk but still putting on a good show. The Wilson effect visible. A thin bright border on the surface surrounding the penumbra. Long swirls of bright faculae trailing the AR in it’s wake, though maybe this is just an impression with no corresponding physics behind it. Two small new spots have emerged and still a way from the edge too. Maybe they’ll turn into something worthwhile?

Grab a look if you can!
